Operating Engineers Local 3 represents the interests of people who build and protect. With that in mind, we want to build and protect the future of the Operating Engineers by supporting those who aspire to further their education with the help of the Local 3 Scholarship program.

Academic Scholarship applicants must be a graduating high school student who has, or will be, graduated at the end of either the fall semester (beginning in 2020) or the spring semester (beginning in 2021) in public, private or parochial schools. They must plan to attend an accredited college or university anywhere in the United States during the academic year and be able to meet the academic requirements for entrance into the university or college of their choice. Students selected for a scholarship must have achieved not less than a 3.0 (“B”) weighted grade point average in their high school work.

2021 Scholarship Rules

The Local 3 Officers, Executive Board and the Scholarship Board of Directors understand
that the workplace is rapidly changing, and many jobs require skills that can be attained only
with a good education. Local 3 is dedicated to giving our young people the opportunity to
succeed by providing them with the chance to further their education and training. For this
reason, Local 3 awards annual scholarships to children, stepchildren and foster children of Local 3 members.

Local 3 awards two types of scholarships: Academic Scholarships (winners are judged based
on academic qualifications) and Merit Scholarships (winners are selected through a random raffle drawing).

All applications must be postmarked on or before March 31, 2021.
