PIPEFITTERS LOCAL 208 SCHOLARSHIP FUND
APPLICATION FOR 2017-2018 ACADEMIC YEAR AVAILABLE
I wish to inform you of the benefit available through the Pipefitters Local 208 Scholarship Fund. A dependent son or daughter of a current active member is now eligible and encouraged to apply for a $500.00 scholarship to help pay the cost of higher education. Complete rules and the application can be found on our Members Only homepage
, please login to access it, or call the hall to have it mailed to you.
I urge you, therefore, to advise your dependent sons and daughters to participate in this fine and worthy program, and to discuss with their counselors the various academic requirements necessary to qualify them for the financial assistance available to them through this scholarship fund. Scholarship awards will be made only to qualified applicants as outlined in the Rules and Regulations for the Scholarship Fund.
As a guideline to courses preparatory to scholarship qualification your dependent son or daughter should take four years of English courses, plus courses in Mathematics, Science, a foreign language and other preparatory academic sources. This type of preparation is essential for a student to attain an SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) score of 500 or better and thus enable him or her to successfully complete the rigorous college programs for which the award is designed.
The Independent Academic Evaluator has the exclusive responsibility of awarding the scholarships solely on the merits of the applicants, and his decision is final.
Application forms are available at Pipefitters Local Union 208, 6350 N. Broadway, Suite 1, Denver, CO 80216 so as to be received on or before Friday, June 9th, 2017. Any application received after this date will not be recognized. Announcement of the awards will be made in July 2017.
