Scholarships (Pierce County residents)

Do you have a son or daughter or do you know a union member with a son or daughter who will be continuing their education after high school in 2012? If so, they are invited to apply for the Jerry Beckendorf Community Service Scholarship. During the past 9 years that we have awarded this scholarship, 70 students have received nearly $43,000 to further their education.

Applicants must complete a 500-word essay describing their most rewarding volunteer activities and what they learned from the experience. They must also: · Be a high school student in Pierce County, Washington. · Have at least one parent or guardian who is a member of a labor union · Plan to attend college or university, community college or junior college, trade or technical school in the fall of 2011.
