In 2016, the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund distributed $1.2 million in scholarship awards to the sons and daughters of Teamsters in the U.S. and Canada. This year, 2017, the Fund is committed to distributing $1.4 million, an increase of $200,000. We appreciate the support of our local unions and joint councils who have kept this scholarship the strongest in the labor movement.
In addition, we have initiated a Training and Vocational Programs scholarship. Similar to the Academic Scholarship, applicants must be the son, daughter or financial dependent of a Teamster member (including BLET, BMWED and GCC members). The training and vocational programs must be related to work in a Teamster-represented industry, class or craft. Applications for the 2017 Training and Vocational Scholarship are available here.
