Internships and Scholarships
AIST scholarships are awarded on an annual basis to talented and dedicated students to encourage them to pursue careers within iron and steel-related industries.
AIST's scholarships are grouped in four main categories, some offering opportunities for internships. Please visit each scholarship page to find out more information, including scholarship award amounts, guidelines and applications.
Recipients will receive a complimentary student membership in AIST (Material Advantage) for each year they receive a scholarship.
All scholarships and grants are awarded in accordance with AIST Foundation’s policies, which may be amended from time to time, and are subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees. Scholarships and grants are awarded subject to availability and funding and AIST Foundation reserves the right to withdraw or amend any listed scholarship or grant without prior notification. Scholarships and grants may be suspended or revoked at any time at the Board’s discretion. In no event shall the AIST Foundation or the Board of Trustees be liable for any claim or cost associated with suspending or revoking any scholarship or grant. All decisions by the Board shall be final and may not be appealed.
In addition to a US$6,000 scholarship, AIST Foundation Steel Intern Scholars receive a paid internship. Rather than being asked to get coffee, the internship gives them a chance to experience first-hand what the steel industry has to offer, and actively contribute to the plant's operational success. We spoke to some of our interns about how they spent their summer.
