Deadline extended to April 14 for 2020 Hoffa scholarship program

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, March 25 ó Due to the national coronavirus emergency, the deadline for the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund has been extended to April 14, 2020. The program offers college and vocational scholarships for the sons, daughters and financial dependents of Teamsters.

Scholarships range from $1,000 to $10,000 for academic scholarships for high school students planning to attend a four-year college or university. There are also $500 to $2,000 vocational/training program scholarships available for those planning to attend a trade or vocational school or community college. (The children or financial dependents of full-time local union officers or full-time staff of local unions are ineligible.)

In 2019, $1.2 million was awarded in academic scholarships for the children of Teamster members to attend four-year college and universities throughout North America. Additionally, many scholarships were awarded to support the costs of vocational/trade school programs.

Again, the deadline to apply has been extended to April 14, 2020. Please visit the scholarship fundís website at http://www.jrhmsf.org in order to find out information on who is eligible to apply and how to apply.
