This is to inform you that we will be announcing the application process for the CWA Joe Beirne Foundation’s scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors has approved the awarding of sixteen (16) partial college scholarships of $4,000 each for two years. Eligible for the scholarships are CWA members, their spouses, children, and grandchildren, including the dependents of retired, laid-off, or deceased members. Applications will be available solely online for submission on the Foundation’s website at http://cwa-union.org/beirne-
Please follow this link at www.cwa-union.org/beirneposter for the poster that you can distribute to members and post on local websites to encourage participation. Full program details can be found on the website at:
This valuable scholarship program is made possible by the funding of CWA locals. For those locals not yet participating in funding the Beirne scholarships, I urge you to do so. Financial arrangements can be made to accommodate your local’s needs.
For more information and assistance, please call 202.434.1320.
