United States Steel Foundation, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of U. S. employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs in the United States.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the U. S. Steel Scholarship Program must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Recipients will be reflective of the diversity of the applicant pool received.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree or certificate from a vocational-technical school is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance and conduct and full-time undergraduate enrollment. If the recipient fails to matriculate full-time or is suspended or put on probation by the institution for academic or disciplinary reasons, the scholarship will be withdrawn. Renewal is also contingent on the continuation of the program by U. S. Steel Foundation, Inc.
New in 2023, U. S. Steel will provide two (2) of the 2023 new recipients with an additional, one-time only, award of $5,000 each. These two (2) awards will be named the Christine Breves Trailblazer Scholarship and the Barry Melnkovic Maverick Scholarship.
Students, please add any relevant information into the goals statement and/or the activities, awards, and honors section of your application if you meet any of the requirements asked for in the two named awards. Only those students that meet objectives listed in the Trailblazer and/or Maverick Scholarships will be considered for these special awards.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
The program will be administered in full compliance with IRS Revenue Procedure 76-47.
