TMS Scholarships

The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society awards more than $50,000 in cash and prizes each year to students studying metallurgy and materials science engineering. If eligible, you are invited to take part in these competitions and join the long list of talented students who entered previously and won.

Henry DeWitt Smith Scholarship

Funding By: AIME (American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers)

Two, $2,000 scholarships are available to graduate students majoring in the field of mineral, metals, and/or materials engineering. An additional $500 for travel expenses is available to the recipient in order to personally accept the award at the TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition. Recipients will also receive a brochure about Mr. Smith and his relationship to the mining industry. The principal aim and purpose of this scholarship fund is to further the mineral industries by affording educational opportunities in the arts and sciences pertaining to those industries, particularly by assisting worthy students in the mining, metallurgical and petroleum departments of leading colleges and universities which confer degrees in mineral engineering. The scholarship recipient is known as the Henry DeWitt Smith Scholar. This scholarship is open to graduate students.

Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division Scholarship

Funding By: TMS Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division

Two, $2,500 scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students in their sophomore or junior years, who are majoring in metallurgical and/or materials science and engineering with an emphasis on manufacturing from product design to production, integrating process control technology into manufacturing, and basic and applied research into key materials technologies that impact manufacturing processes. Additionally, each recipient receives up to $500 for travel expenses to attend the meeting to accept the award. Recipients are known as MPMD Scholars.

J. Keith Brimacombe Presidential Scholarship

One, $5,000 cash award scholarship will be made to an undergraduate student majoring in metallurgical engineering, materials science and engineering or minerals processing/extraction programs during the academic year. In addition, a travel stipend of $1,000 is also available for the recipient to attend the TMS Annual Meeting, to formally receive the scholarship.

EMPMD Gilbert Chin Scholarship

One, $2,000 cash award is available to an undergraduate student studying subjects in relation to synthesis and processing, structure, properties, and performance of electronic, photonic, magnetic and superconducting materials as well as materials used in packaging and interconnecting such materials in device structures. An additional $500 for travel expenses will be available to the recipient to attend the TMS Annual Meeting to accept the award.

Extraction & Processing Division Scholarship

Four, $2,000 cash award scholarships are available to undergraduate students majoring in the extraction and processing of minerals, metals, and materials. Additionally, the scholarship recipients will be given the opportunity of selecting up to five EPD-sponsored conference proceedings or textbooks to be donated to the recipient’s college or university library in his/her name. Up to $500 for travel expenses to the TMS Annual Meeting to accept the award will be given to each recipient.

International Symposium on Superalloys Scholarship

Two, $2,000 cash award scholarships are available to undergraduate and graduate students majoring in metallurgical and/or materials science and engineering with an emphasis on all aspects of the high-temperature, high-performance materials used in the gas turbine industry and all other applications.

Light Metals Division Scholarship

Three, $4,000 cash award scholarships are available to undergraduate students majoring in metallurgical and/or materials science and engineering with an emphasis on both traditional (aluminum, magnesium, beryllium, titanium, lithium, and other reactive metals) and emerging light metals (composites, laminates, etc.). Additionally, the scholarship recipients will be given the opportunity of selecting up to $300 in LMD-sponsored conference proceedings or textbooks to be donated to the recipient’s college or university library in his/her name and up to $400 in books for the award recipient. Up to $600 for travel expenses to the TMS Annual Meeting to accept the award will be given to each recipient.

Structural Materials Division Scholarship

Two, $2,500 scholarships are available to undergraduate students majoring in metallurgical and/or materials science and engineering with an emphasis on the science and engineering of load-bearing materials, including studies into the nature of a material’s physical properties based upon its microstructure and operating environment. Additionally, the scholarship recipient will be given up to $500 for travel expenses to the TMS Annual Meeting to accept his/her award.
