FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Steel Dynamics Foundation, Inc. is giving $1 million to the University of Saint Francis (USF) over a 10-year period to establish the university’s Steel Dynamics Foundation Scholarship.

Six renewable scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded to members of each freshman class beginning in the fall semester of 2014. Scholarships will be renewable for four years.

Applicants must be full-time students majoring in a four-year degree program in science, business, mathematics, accounting, or finance. Recipients will be known as Steel Dynamics Scholars, and must maintain academic standards and remain in a qualified major at USF to renew their annual scholarships. Scholarships will be applied toward tuition and fees.

“We are delighted by the support of USF students shown by the Steel Dynamics Scholarship,” said university President Sister M. Elise Kriss, OSF. “We have been strong supporters of the sciences across the years through our strong healthcare programs, and our chemistry and biology programs have prepared graduates continuing their studies in medicine and veterinary medicine. USF students in our environmental science program contribute to green initiatives for businesses and protect the health and well being of employees and the public.
