Scholarships & Awards
Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program
The Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation awards competitive college scholarships to children of company employees through its Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program. This scholarship opportunity is administered by the Middletown, Ohio Community Foundation who independently selects each recipient based on their outstanding academic achievement, leadership, and community involvement. This is one of the many ways we are investing in our future. Information regarding the 2022 scholarship opportunity will be available in Fall 2021.
Louie F. Cox Memorial African American Scholarship
The Louie F. Cox Scholarship benefits African American students who live or will graduate from a high school located in Butler or Warren Counties in Ohio. The $20,000 scholarship strives to recognize and reward outstanding high school academic and non-academic achievements, and to provide financial assistance to deserving scholars pursuing a bachelor’s degree on a full-time basis from an accredited U.S. state or private not-for-profit college or university. No preference is given to Cleveland-Cliffs employees or their children. Association with Cleveland-Cliffs or its subsidiaries is not a condition of eligibility.
Steel Magnolia Awards
In recognition of women who have overcome obstacles to make a difference in the lives of others, the Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation underwrites the Steel Magnolia Awards. The awards honor women who have faced personal adversity and shown exceptional strength, courage, compassion, and leadership in the communities where the company operates. The recipients are selected by an independent panel of judges. More than 50 Steel Magnolia Awards have been presented to inspirational women since the program's inaugural year in 2009.
