This is a reminder that applications are now being accepted through April 30, 2015, for the CWA Joe Beirne Foundation’s annual scholarship offerings for the 2015-2016 school year.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors has approved the awarding of fifteen (15) partial college scholarships of up to $3,000 each, and the winners also will receive second-year scholarships for the same amount, contingent upon satisfactory academic achievement.
Eligible for the scholarships are CWA members, their spouses, children and grandchildren, including the dependents of retired, laid-off, or deceased members. Applicants must be high school graduates or high school students who will graduate during the year in which they apply. Undergraduate and graduate students returning to school may also apply.
Applications will be available solely online for completion and submission to the Foundation’s website: http://www.cwa-union.org/pages/beirne_scholarship_application.
Attached is the poster that you can distribute to members and post on local websites to encourage participation. The winners will be chosen by lottery drawing. Further information about the program can be found at http://www.cwa-union.org/pages/beirne.
This valuable scholarship program is made possible by the funding of CWA locals. For those locals not yet participating in funding the Beirne scholarships, I urge you to do so. Financial arrangements can be made to accommodate your local’s needs.
