Since 2019 IPMI added two Internship Awards for undergraduate students from all educational disciplines related to precious metals.
Up to two member companies can either submit applications for their preferred candidate or IPMI can assist with their recruitment. The final decision rests with the hiring company. Each internship awardee will receive US$ 5,000 from the Foundation Endowment after completion of the assignment. The hiring company is responsible for the payment of the award recipient as well as travel to and accommodation for the Annual Conference.
Best suited for the Internship Award are students in their junior year. However, Sophomores or Seniors will be considered as well.
At the Annual Conference the awardee(s) will present their work and receive the award in an official ceremony during the Awards Banquet.
