“ It is a great honor to be the recipient of the 2001 J. Keith Brimacombe TMS
Presidential Scholarship. To me, the meaning is twofold. First, the award is
a reflection of the splendid faculty in the Department of Materials, Metallurgical,
Mining, and Geological Engineering at the University of Idaho (UI). Secondly
the award personally challenges me to continue the pursuit of academic, vocational,
and personal excellence. I would like to thank the TMS Scholarship Com- mittee,
the professors at UI, my class- mates, friends, and family, and most importantly
the Lord Jesus Christ – the Strength of my Life. Thank You, all!”
"It is indeed a great honor to receive this prestigious award from a leading
world-known society such as TMS. This award has already boosted my confidence
and has motivated me to further my career in the leading research organizations
or to continue with Ph.D. program. I sincerely thank A/P M. Gupta for providing
me the invaluable guidance, and to TMS for recognizing my research efforts through
this award and for keeping me updated through its research publications in the
area of Materials Science."
" As I complete my undergraduate Materials Science and Engineering education,
I am excited to embark on a career in electronic plans are to attend graduate
school to study the emerging field of microphotonics. After acquiring an advanced
degree, I plan to stay active in TMS and my community during my career in industry.
Thank you for this generous award."
" In the process of growing, TMS has provided both the means and the direction.
Such an organization guarantees its success by facilitating those of others.
I thank TMS for the recognition, and, on behalf of the University of British
Columbia, for the valuable gift of literature."
Extraction & Processing Division Scholarship
Kristen L. Hartman, University of Missouri
" Being a recipient of this scholarship is truly a reward and an honor. The
support of my education which TMS is providing is wonderful. The opportunities
that TMS provides for professionals and collegiates to learn about the exciting
advancements in our field and the opportunity to network at annual meetings
is great. I'm looking forward to having these opportunities in February."
"Being recognized by TMS and the Extraction and Processing Division with this
award is a great honor for me. It brings me great pleasure knowing that my university
and my colleagues can also benefit from this award through the donation of the
EPD-sponsored reference material. The support that TMS and the EPD have shown
toward advancing education is a credit to both the organization and the industry."
"This scholarship is a tangible reflection of the hard work and effort I have
put into my scholastic, industrial and social endeavors over the past three
plus years at the University of Illinois. It also lets me know that others see
the potential positive contribution that I will be able to make in our field
Being awarded the TMS Extractive & Processing Division scholarship is a great
honor. It is an even greater honor, though, because members of my chosen future
profession have recognized my accomplishments as a student and as a young professional."
"The TMS Superalloys Scholarship will be much appreciated. This scholarship
will allow me to complete my senior year without the additional pressure of
outside work and employment distractions. My TMS membership has allowed me to
learn more and more about The Min- erals, Metals & Materials Society throughout
my college career."
"This award will help me in my academic program and is a source of motivation
to continue in the way of success. Metallurgy and materials science are exciting
disciplines but, as other engineering fields, require hard work. I believe the
award program of TMS and the Light Metals Division is a good way to promote
our engineering field."
"As a student member of TMS I enjoy being able to stay abreast of what is happening
in the field of materials through JOM. I also know that TMS is committed to
keeping the highest standards in all it does. That is why it is such an honor
to be chosen as one of the TMS Light Metals Division scholars for this year.
This award will be a definite help financially and has encouraged me to further
pursue my education in materials science and engineering."
Light Metals Division Scholarship

"It is with great honor that I accept this award. I work hard at school, and
this scholarship allows me to focus more time on my studies and less time worrying
about monetary issues. TMS is a wonderful organization for students and professionals
alike. I am extremely grateful for this award."
"TMS membership has provided me access to the professional world of materials
science and engineering. It has both broadened my perspective of the field,
and has increased my desire to be an active leader in the field. The scholarship
will provide much needed financial relief for my parents and myself as I continue
my education in the field of materials science and engineering."
"I see my TMS student membership as a bridge between my education and my career.
Publications and conferences allow me to learn about the latest advances in
materials and to meet professionals in my field. It is an honor to receive this
scholarship, and I look forward to contributing to the TMS community in the
" For me, TMS has always been an outstanding source of reliable and up-to-date
technical information. It has also served as my link to the rest of the materials
science community through publications and events. The TMS-sponsored journal,
Metallurgical and Materials Transactions, has been invaluable for my Ph.D. research
as a way to understand prior work done in the field and also to communicate
my own results."
