It’s scholarship time!

Group of Diverse International Students Celebrating Graduation

If you have a child who’s graduating from high school and can use some cash for college or vocational school, you’ll want to apply for a Joint Council 7 Harry Polland/Bob Morales scholarship.

Applicants are eligible for scholarships when their parent or legal guardian is a member in good standing of Teamsters Local 853. Criteria that will be considered are academic achievement, school and community service, and financial need. In addition to completing the application form, the student must also submit a two-page essay on the topic: “The Importance of Labor Unions.”

Like they say with the lottery—”you can’t win if you don’t play!” It can’t hurt to apply.

The deadline to apply is July 1, 2022. To get all the details and the application form, contact
