Now through April 30, 2015 applications for the CWA Joe Beirne Foundation's annual scholarship offering for the 2015 - 2016 school year are being accepted. Fifteen partial college scholarships of up to $3,000 each will be awarded. The winners will also receive second-year scholarships for the same amount, contingent upon satisfactory academic achievement.
CWA members, their spouses, children and grandchildren, including the dependents of retired, laid-off, or deceased members are eligible.
Applications will be available solely online for completion and submission to the Foundation's website: http://www.cwa-union.org/pages/beirne_scholarship_application. The winners will be chosen by lottery. Further information about the program can be found at the website.
This valuable scholarship program is made possible by the funding of many CWA locals.
