Cliffs places a strong emphasis on education and maintains an annual scholarship campaign for children
of its employees. The Cliffs Scholarship Fund provides opportunity for direct college support of $2,000
non-renewable scholarships to children of employees. The number and size of scholarship awards is dependent
upon business conditions.
Children of employees of Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. and associated companies who are graduating high school seniors with a minimum cumulative weighted grade point average of 3.0 and plan to enroll in college (four-year college granting degrees, two-year junior and community colleges offering degrees transferable to four-year institutions) by the next fall term are eligible, provided their parent (or legal guardian) is a full-time employee of the Company. Also eligible are children of laid-off (subject to recall), disabled and deceased employees.
