The Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST) Foundation’s and the American Iron and Steel Institute’s (AISI) “Ferrous Metallurgy Education Today,” or FeMET Initiative, and “Steel Engineering Education Link,” or StEEL Initiative, aimed at attracting top talent to the North American steel industry, have awarded their scholarships for the 2011–2012 academic year.

Seven students from four United States and Canadian universities have been awarded FeMET scholarships, focusing on metallurgy and materials science. Similarly, three students from United States and Canadian universities were awarded StEEL scholarships, focusing on all engineering disciplines. In addition, one AISI/AIST Foundation Premier Scholarship was awarded.
