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.

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.
