IUE-CWA Circle W Scholarship 2017-18 Application

A small bit of good came from the unfortunate closing of IUE-CWA Local 627 with the establishment of a scholarship for high school seniors in Marion County, West Virginia, which was where our Phillips Lighting plant was located.

The IUE-CWA/Circle W Scholarship will make an award of $400 (a total of $1,200) for up to three high school seniors a year.  Once awarded, monies are paid directly to the school.  Students can be going to a trade school, university or college.  Any Marion County high school senior may apply but preference will be given to children of former IUE-CWA members.

Please fill out the application below to be considered for our scholarships.  You must submit a required essay of no less than 300 and no more than 500 words, which includes all of the following:

  • Information on the student’s community involvement/volunteer work
  • The student’s career goals and aspirations
  • What the labor movement means to the student and what impact it has had on his or her life.

**If the student is interested in a field related to organized labor, please note that as well.

Essays must be proofread and edited, saved as an MS Word document titled as follows: firstname_lastname.doc  (Essay must be submitted with the application).
