FeMET, StEEL and Premier name internship placements

The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and the Association for Iron & Steel Technology Foundation’s Ferrous Metallurgy Education Today, or FeMET Initiative, and Steel Engineering Education Link, or StEEL Scholarship program, both aimed at attracting top talent to the North American steel industry, have awarded scholarships of $5,000 to third year students from leading North American colleges for the 2011–2013 academic years. Each scholarship includes a paid internship at a North American steel company during the summer and a second scholarship of $5,000 in the student’s fourth year based on satisfactory academic and internship performance.

The following 2011–2013 scholars have been awarded internships for the summer of 2012:
