Congratulations to all scholarship winners

Sol Siegal Scholarship Program Supports Higher Education for Employees’ Children.

Created in 2004 as a part of Olympic Steel’s 50th anniversary celebration, the Sol Siegal Scholarship – which honors our company’s founder – rewards the hard work of the children and dependents of Olympic Steel employees. Each year, we award up to 10 renewable scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each to deserving full-time undergraduates attending accredited colleges and universities or vocational/technical institutes. To date, we have had the opportunity through this scholarship program to support the academic achievements of 140 students.

Selection for the Sol Siegal scholarships is based on the following criteria:

  • Strong academic performance
  • Sustained participation in school/community activities
  • Demonstration of leadership skills
  • Clear articulation of scholarship qualifications and personal goals
  • Complimentary outside appraisals (recommendations)
