The objectives of the AIST Birmingham Member Chapter Scholarships are to reward and encourage AIST Birmingham Chapter area high school seniors or currently enrolled undergraduate students preparing for a career in engineering by providing a grant of financial support during full-time attendance at any accredited college or university.
One (1) one-year scholarship, valued at $2,000 will be available each year and is renewable for up to 4 years (based on a review of the recipient's grades). The scholarship will be awarded to an AIST Birmingham Chapter area student based on the criteria the Scholarship Award Committee has developed. If there are no applicants in engineering, the award may be given to an eligible student studying other majors relating to iron and steel production.
Students are eligible to compete for the scholarships if, at the time of application, they are a current AIST member or the child (natural, step, adopted, or ward) or spouse of a member in good standing, of the AIST Birmingham Member Chapter. The student must be accepted in an eligible, full-time course of study in the field of engineering at an accredited college or university with a demonstrated interest toward a career in the iron and steel industry. The awards will be made without regard to financial need.
