TMS 2020 Student Scholarship Recipients Announced
March 5, 2020—Pittsburgh, PA (USA): The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) has announced the recipients of its 2020 student academic scholarships. Most recipients received their awards at the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (TMS2020) held from February 23–27 in San Diego, California. Recipients of the International Symposium on Superalloys Scholarship were recognized at the Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) conference in September 2019.

In addition to scholarship monies, the awards include transportation stipends to help defray the cost of travel to the meeting where the award was conferred. The criteria used to select recipients include academic achievement, relevance of coursework/experience to the award, activities and work experience, and leadership.

Complete award descriptions and selection criteria can be found at awards.tms.org. Photos are available upon request. For more information on the TMS Foundation, which funds many of these scholarships, visit www.TMSFoundation.org.

The recipients and summary of the awards are as follows:

Kaufman CALPHAD Scholarship:
Supported by CALPHAD Inc. and the TMS Foundation, this scholarship is made to a full-time undergraduate students in his or her sophomore or junior year, who is majoring in metallurgical engineering, materials science and engineering, or minerals processing/extraction programs. The scholarship is established to recognize the memory of Larry Kaufman for his contributions to computational thermodynamics and its applications.
