Objectives – The objectives of the AIST Baltimore Member Chapter Scholarships are to reward and encourage AIST Baltimore Chapter area high school seniors or currently enrolled undergraduate students preparing for a career in engineering or metallurgy by providing a grant of financial support during full-time attendance at any accredited college or university.
Awards – One (1) one-year scholarship, valued at $1,500 will be available each year. The scholarship will be awarded to an AIST Baltimore Chapter area student based on the criteria the Scholarship Award Committee has developed. If there are no applicants in engineering or metallurgy, the award may be given to an eligible student studying other majors relating to iron and steel production.
Eligibility – Students are eligible to compete for the scholarships if, at the time of application, they are the children or grandchildren (natural, step, adopted, or ward), or spouse of a member (two or more years) in good standing, of the AIST Baltimore Member Chapter. The student must be accepted in an eligible, full-time course of study in the field of engineering at an accredited college or university with a demonstrated interest toward a career in the iron and steel industry. The awards will be made without regard to financial need.
