Washington, DC— The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and the Association for Iron and Steel Technology Foundation (AIST Foundation) have announced to students interested in a career in metallurgy or materials science that applications for the second year of FeMET Scholarships are being accepted now through April 18, 2006.

Its three goals are to encourage more students to choose metallurgy or materials science as their field of study; to recruit more of such graduates into the steel industry; and to increase the number of professors knowledgeable in steel in North American universities.

Each scholarship includes $5,000 for the scholar’s junior year, a paid summer internship with a North American steel company and $5,000 for their senior year tuition.

It is the program’s goal that this scholarship and summer internship provides an incentive for students to become involved in the steel industry. As a result, students entering the program are ensured a two-year commitment by the program, provided a satisfactory performance by the student both academically and in their internship.

Instructions for applying are found on the AISI and AIST Foundation websites, www.steel.org and www.aist.org, respectively. The application deadline is April 18, 2006.
