The TMS Foundation fulfills its mission through a variety of programs benefitting students and young professionals and promoting education and stewardship. These programs include:

Student Programs

Since 1994, the TMS Foundation has awarded 240 scholarships and travel grants. Each year, deserving students receive much-needed financial support through TMS Division Scholarships that allows them to complete their undergraduate studies and move on to advanced degrees. Students also benefit greatly from the technical exchange and networking opportunities at international gatherings of the minerals, metals, and materials community. Travel grants help offset the costs of attending the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition and the Materials Science & Technology Conference (MS&T) each year. The following programs for students are sponsored in part or in full by the TMS Foundation:
  • Kaufman CALPHAD Scholarship
  • Extraction & Processing Division Scholarship
  • Functional Materials Division Scholarship
  • Light Metals Division Scholarship
