A skilled workforce is required to continue the technological advancements necessary for a sustainable steel industry.
To support this evolution, the AIST Foundation's mission is to ensure the iron and steel industry of tomorrow will have a sufficient number of qualified professionals.
With strong industry support and philanthropy, the Foundation funds initiatives to promote the steel industry as a viable and rewarding career choice for young engineers. Each year, the AIST Foundation awards in excess of US$700,000 for college scholarships and program grants to develop interest in a career in the steel industry.
To support the Iron and steel industry of tomorrow we must get young professionals involved and engaged in AIST. Anyone age 30 and under can take advantage of a free year of AIST Membership.
