See How the TMS Foundation Supports Minerals, Metals, and Materials

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 Scholarships and Contests

The TMS Foundation awards nearly $40,000 in scholarships annually to outstanding students studying minerals, metals, and materials science and engineering. These deserving students receive much-needed financial support that allows them to complete their undergraduate studies and to move on to advanced degrees. Student scholarships and contests sponsored in part or in full by the Foundation include:
  • J. Keith Brimacombe Presidential Scholarship
  • Electronic, Magnetic & Photonic Materials Division Gilbert Chin Scholarship
  • Extraction & Processing Division Scholarship
  • Light Metals Division Scholarship
  • Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division Scholarship
  • Structural Materials Division Scholarship
  • TMS Technical Division Student Poster Contest
  • TMS Best Paper Contest
For more information, visit the TMS Student Scholarships page.
Young Professional Programs
Once students have completed their education, the TMS Foundation provides professional development support to help them navigate the early years of their career through programs designed specifically for young professionals. These programs offer opportunities for travel, leadership development, and networking that help to provide promising young graduates with the skills needed to build a successful career. Young professional programs sponsored by the Foundation include:
  • Young Leaders Professional Development Awards
  • Young Leaders International Scholar Awards
  • Emerging Leaders Alliance Program
For more information, visit the TMS Young Professionals Program webpage.
Awards
Publicly recognizing the talent and achievements of students and young professionals can help to boost their prestige in the field and encourage them to reach their potential as scientists and engineers. To achieve these goals, TMS offers the following awards for students and young professionals:
  • AIME Robert Lansing Hardy Award
  • Early Career Faculty Fellow Award
  • Institute of Metals/Robert Franklin Mehl Award
  • Shri Ram Arora Award
  • Vittorio de Nora Prize for Environmental Improvements in Metallurgical Industries
For more information, visit the TMS Professional Honors and Awards Recognition webpage.
Student Travel Grants
Students benefit greatly from the technical exchange and networking opportunities at international gatherings of the minerals, metals, and materials community. Unfortunately, the high costs associated with travel and housing prevent many students from attending these events. That’s why the TMS Foundation funds student travel grants to offset the costs of attending the TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition and Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) each year.
SPECIAL PROJECTS
COMIC-tanium: The Super Materials of the Superheroes
An example of a special outreach initiative funded by the TMS Foundation, this museum-quality retrospective was developed as a fun, interactive educational experience. This traveling exhibit will tour the country, bringing real-life minerals, metals, and materials science and engineering to the public in a fun and interesting way.
