Each year, AIST Foundation sponsors three major contests for high school, undergraduate and/or graduate students.
This contest challenges students to research the steel industry and produce a three-minute original video that helps to brand the industry as a potential career field. The video should educate young viewers about the steel industry.
Open to undergraduate students who have completed a project and submitted an application. Applications are reviewed then selected to be presented at AISTech. The topic of the project is unlimited but must be technical in nature.
Open to full-time students pursuing a graduate degree and whom are registered to attend AISTech. Poster subject must be related to the iron and steel industry, properties or applications.
Established in April 2014 with a US$100,000 donation to AIST by Mr. Thomas C. Graham Sr., the purpose of the T. C. Graham Fund for Innovation In Steel Application is to encourage and recognize innovative applications for steel that may lead to the development of new markets. The winning entry will receive a US$20,000 cash prize.
