Established and endowed by a gift from Sharon P. Haverstock and contributions from the forging industry, the Forging Industry Women's Scholarship program was set up to financially help talented women students become aware of, work towards and experience the many leadership opportunities that a career in manufacturing and the forging industry holds. This scholarship is looking to reward the best and brightest women who have the desire and potential to reach executive or senior leadership levels.

The Forging Industry Women's Scholarship Program assists women seeking a professional associate's, baccalaureate or master's degree in select engineering and business majors, pursue their postsecondary education. Renewable scholarships are offered for full-time study at a North American accredited two- or four-year college or university of the student's choice.
