Everyone could use some help with tuition, and the IAM Scholarship Competition is a good place to find it. But you better act fast because the submission deadline is Friday, February 24.
The IAM awards scholarships to:
- Children of IAM members (parent or guardian) applying for college
- Children of IAM members (parent or guardian) applying for vocational or technical school
- IAM members applying for college
Since its implementation in 1960, the scholarship competition has continued to grow. This past year, 2015-2016, the IAM received 294 applications for scholarships. The 16 scholarships awarded were valued at $72,000.
You may call the IAM Safety and Health Department, which administers the scholarship competition, at 301-967-4708 to request an application packet to be mailed. Application packets have been sent to local and district lodges.
