Two scholarships at US$2,500 and two scholarships at $5,000 will be available each year. The number of scholarships awarded will be dependent on the number of applications received. The scholarship will be awarded to an AIST Detroit Member Chapter area student based on the eligibility criteria. If there are no applicants in engineering or metallurgy, the awards may be given to an eligible student studying other majors relating to iron and steel production.
This scholarship will be awarded annually to a child or grandchild of an AIST Detroit Member Chapter member in good standing for two or more consecutive years.

The applicant should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, with a demonstrated interest in a career, or plans to pursue a career, in the iron and steel industry. The awards will be made without regard to financial need.
