James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund begins accepting applications from sons and daughters of Teamsters for 2019

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, December 20 — The 2019 application process for the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund (JRHMSF) is now open. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2019.

The application process is completely online again this year. All applications must be completed through the online portal found on the Fund’s website: http://www.jrhmsf.org. This JRHMSF website outlines eligibility requirements and application procedures, and applicants must complete a brief registration process in order to access the registration area. Please use the “Key” JRHMSF to begin the process.

There are two types of scholarship applications available: Academic Scholarships, which range up to $10,000, and Training/Vocational Scholarships, which range up to $2,000. Full details and eligibility requirements for each type of scholarship are available on the JRHMSF website at the link above.

In 2018, 48 BLET families were winners of JRHMSF scholarships, including eight $10,000 scholarship winners, 36 $1,000 winners and four vocational scholarship winners. The $10,000 awards are the highest honor bestowed by the Hoffa scholarship fund.

James R. Hoffa became a Teamster member in 1934 and served as General President for 14 years, and, in recognition of his tireless service to the union and its members, was honored as General President Emeritus for life. At the November 1999 General Executive Board meeting, then-General Secretary-Treasurer C. Thomas Keegel presented a resolution to establish the new scholarship fund. Assisting the sons, daughters and financial dependents of Teamster members with their educational goals is a tradition that we are proud to continue.

The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund is an independent organization established and registered as a tax-exempt entity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Fund is established solely to provide scholarships to the child or dependent of a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, and contributions to the Fund are deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law.

For general questions about the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund, please call (855) 670-ISTS (4787) or email: contactus@applyISTS.com.
