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.

For this reason, Local 3 awards annual scholarships to children, stepchildren and foster children of Local 3 members.
