About Resources Education Directory Meetings Technical Foundation


Steel Founders’ Society Supporters,

Recruiting students to join our industry and grow into leadership positions remains a critical need in the steel casting industry and a strategic initiative of the Society. The Steel Founders' Society Foundation aims to attract the next generation workforce by providing scholarships to student interns. To compete for the scholarships, interns are required to work at a member foundry and carry out a specific task or investigation and selected works are presented at the annual T&O conference. We encourage all members that employ interns in 2019 to give them an opportunity to receive a scholarship by registering these interns using the attached forms.

The Steel Founders' Society Foundation has two scholarship programs: the Peaslee Scholarship and the Schumo Scholarship. The Peaslee Scholarship was established by the Foundation Board in honor of the late Dr. Kent Peaslee, the Chair of Steelmaking Technology and Curators’ Teaching Professor of metallurgical engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The $1,000 scholarship is to be awarded to a student intern that has worked at an SFSA member foundry during 2019 in the area of melting or refining.

The Schumo Scholarship program awards $1,000 scholarships to interns that submit papers based on their projects. The scholarships are competitive; each applicant is required to submit a paper and PowerPoint presentation on a particular project they have completed during their employment.

Internship registrations are due by July 1, 2019.

If you would like to show your support for the SFSA Foundation and provide a donation to this worthy effort, please contact any member of the SFSA staff or click here.

Thank you,
