TMS Foundation Grant to Fund Engineers Without Borders Project
September 8, 2009

The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) is building on its core mission to invest in knowledge, people, products, and infrastructure that positively impact societal quality of life by approving a grant for a collaborative project with Engineers Without Borders-USA (EWB-USA), a nonprofit humanitarian organization that partners with developing communities worldwide to improve their quality of life.

The TMS Foundation grant will subsidize a soon-to-determined project that centers on using materials science and engineering principles as applied to sustainable development. The venture will be carried out by a student project team consisting of at least two Material Advantage student members. The Material Advantage student program provides materials science and engineering students access to the benefits of four preeminent professional societies: TMS, the American Ceramic Society, the Association for Iron & Steel Technology and ASM International.

The EWB-USA partnership involves the implementation of sustainable engineering projects, while involving and training internationally responsible engineers and engineering students. The selected project will be announced at Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) 2009 Conference & Exhibition set for October 25th-29th in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The students participating in the project will be invited to present a report at the TMS 2010 Annual Meeting & Exhibition on February 14th-18th, 2010 in Seattle, Washington.

Any EWB-USA student or professional chapter can apply for the grant by filling out the TMS project application, which can be downloaded on the Current Grant Opportunities portion of the EWB-USA member page.
