CANTON, Ohio, Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The TimkenSteel Charitable Fund has awarded seven new TimkenSteel scholars with $145,000 in scholarship funds.
The high school seniors, all children of TimkenSteel Corporation employees, will use the funds for the academic pursuit of their choice at any accredited university. They participated in a competitive application process which was open to employees' children around the world and based upon academic and extracurricular achievement.
"We have some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry working at TimkenSteel, and many have smart kids with tremendous potential. TimkenSteel scholarships fuel their dreams and, for the top award winners, may even open new educational possibilities," said Elaine Russell Reolfi, executive vice president at TimkenSteel and president of the company's charitable fund.
