THE Iron and Steel Institute offers annually a limited number of grants from the research fund founded by the late Mr. Andrew Carnegie in aid of metallurgical research work. The object of the scheme is to enable students who have passed through a college curriculum, or have been trained in industrial establishments, to conduct researches on problems of practical and scientific importance relating to the metallurgy of iron and steel and allied subjects. The value of the grant will depend on the nature of the proposed research work, but the maximum amount granted in any one year will, as a rule, not exceed £100. Applications for grants must be made before September 30. Further information can be obtained from the Secretary, Iron and Steel Institute, 28 Victoria Street, London, S.W.I.
