FIERF is very pleased to have been entrusted with the administration of the new Forging Industry Women’s Scholarship made possible through a very generous gift of Sharon Haverstock,” said FIERF President Rob Mayer (The Queen City Forging Co.), who recently announced the program. “Her generosity provides a new opportunity to address our need to attract and train those who will be critical to the future of our companies.”
The scholarship program will award a maximum of three scholarships of up to $5,000 to women currently enrolled as full-time students in the U.S., Canada or Mexico. Eligible candidates are women pursuing an associate, baccalaureate or master’s degree in engineering, management, marketing, manufacturing or comparable area of study at an accredited university or community college. Preference will be given to students with a connection to the forging supply chain and will encourage an internship in a forging industry company.
