7th Annual Metallurgy Scholarship Announcement

Ellwood Group, Inc. (EGI) is pleased to announce our 7th Annual Metallurgy Scholarship, which is awarded to talented and dedicated metallurgical students to encourage their pursuit of a career within the steel and heavy metal industry.

The scholarship is open to undergraduate college students in their junior year currently majoring in the field of metallurgy/material science at selected and accredited four-year colleges and universities. In the interest of reaching a broader, more rounded pool of students, the scholarship opportunities and criteria remain expanded, to include a minimum GPA requirement 2.75.

A $15,000 scholarship will be given to the winner and up to three additional $5,000 scholarships will be available to well-qualified students. The scholarship includes a paid internship at an EGI business unit in the USA during the summer of 2014.

Our goal is to encourage more students to choose metallurgy as their field of study and to recruit more interns and graduates into the industry, specifically to EGI.

Along with the completed application, the applicant packet must be received by EGI on or before October 14, 2013.
