The William Blakley Memorial
APWU Local 443 Scholarship 2017
We are pleased to announce the 2017 William Blakley Memorial Local 443 Scholarship Program. The application filing deadline is August 5, 2017. A member of the scholarship committee must be in receipt of your application by that date.
A completed application and a Letter of Acceptance from the higher education facility or schedule of classes are required with the scholarship application and must be received by the Scholarship Committee by that date. The application must include a signed verification showing the applicant is a son, daughter or legal ward of a member in good standing since August 6, 2016. A member in good standing with Local 443 is defined as one whose dues are paid in full. Retirees’ dependent children are not eligible to apply.
To be eligible, an applicant must be a graduating high school senior or a current student in an accredited college, university or technical school. All applicants for the scholarship(s) must be considered full time students. The education facilities will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee. The student will be eligible to apply for the scholarship(s) up to five (5) years from high school graduation. Non-winning students from each year will be required to re-apply for the scholarship(s) each year.
The winner(s) of the one-time only five hundred dollar ($500.00) scholarship will be drawn randomly at the August 6, 2017 regular monthly meeting. The number of scholarships awarded will be determined by the amount of money available in the Scholarship fund divided by $500. There will be no partial scholarships awarded. All awards will be sent directly to the school of the student’s choice. Past winners of scholarships awarded by APWU Local 443 are not eligible. The member related to the eligible student is required to be present at the drawing unless excused by The Committee. (Requests to be excused must be submitted in writing prior to the start of the August 6, 2017 regular monthly meeting of APWU Local 443.)
Each winner will have to complete a short biography and photo for use in our newspaper, The Dispatcher. Any discrepancies that may arise will be settled by the Scholarship Committee and their decision is final. Please contact The APWU Local 443 Scholarship Committee at (330)744-3644 if you have any questions regarding the rules or eligibility of this scholarship program.
