Northeastern Ohio Member Chapter Scholarships
The Alfred B. Glossbrenner Scholarship was established in 1988, in honor of the founding chairman of the AISE Canton District Section. In 1996, the Executive Committee of AISE Canton Section voted to award a second scholarship in honor of John Klusch for more than 35 years as Canton Section Secretary.
The Alfred B. Glossbrenner Scholarship is valued at US$2,000 per year for up to four years. The John Klusch Scholarship is valued at US$2,000 per year for up to four years. The AIST Northeastern Ohio Member Chapter may award up to two (2) of each of the scholarships, per year.
The Northeastern Ohio Member Chapter also awards scholarships directly through Youngstown State University and Akron University for US$1,000 each for 1 year.
Students eligible to compete for the Scholarship must, at the time of application, be the children (natural, step-children, adopted or ward) of a United States citizen or landed immigrant who is a member, in good standing and paid for the past two years, of the Association for Iron & Steel Technology.

Scholarships are renewable on an annual basis up to three additional years.

The scholarships will be awarded principally on the basis of academic achievements with respect to High School GPA, Rank in class ACT / SAT Scores, extra-curricular activities, and planned major course of study (engineering applicants are preferred) to eligible high school senior student(s).

The student must begin the course of study, at the college or university, in the fall of the same year the scholarship is awarded.
