TimkenSteel, headquartered in Canton, is a leading steel manufacturer of custom special bar quality steel that advances critical products in the world’s most demanding applications. As part
of TimkenSteel Charitable Fund, eligible children of TimkenSteel employees and retirees can apply for the annual college scholarship program, which awards scholarships ranging from
$5,000 to $80,000 to high school seniors.  Recipients are chosen based upon areas of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom, including academic standing, extracurricular participation and community involvement. Scholarship awards can be applied to the costs of tuition, university fees, books, supplies, room and board and, in some cases, transportation. The scholarship program is open for applications beginning August through early October each year, with winners announced every December. “We are so proud of Emma, Alivia and Eliott for succeeding in this wonderful achievement,” said Superintendent Scott Beatty. “We are also grateful for community leaders like TimkenSteel, who give our students something to strive for and equip them with the resources they can utilize to thrive in the future.”
