About this scholarship

The Rowe Scientific Metallurgy Scholarship has been developed by Rowe Scientific Pty Ltd in conjunction with Curtin University to encourage and support students who have chosen to study metallurgy at Curtin University (Western Australian School of Mines).

Rowe Scientific Ply Ltd has been supplying the scientific community and laboratories around Australia since 1987. They wish to give back to the community through supporting technical people who are studying in areas that will support the industries that have supported Rowe Scientific, and therefore wish in this case to support students who major in Metallurgy.
