2018 James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship
December 7, 2017
TO: All Teamster Local Unions and Joint Councils
The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund awarded $1.4 million in scholarship
awards to students in the U.S. and Canada this year. For the first time this included scholarships to assist with students attending training and vocational programs. Assisting the sons, daughters and financial dependents of Teamster members with their educational goals is a tradition that we are proud to continue.
This year the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund decided to have International Scholarship and Tuition Service (ISTS) administer the academic and vocational program awards for the Fund. ISTS is an experienced administrator for college scholarship funds across the country.
The Fund’s website, www.jrhmsf.org , will continue to have the most up-to-date information about the online application for the Academic and Training and Vocational Programs scholarships. The application process for the programs is now open and we encourage the sons, daughters and financial dependents of members to apply.
