The following is a letter from Larry Cohen President of the Communications Workers of America, IAPE's "parent union."
We're ready, once again, to kick off the CWA Joe Beirne Foundation's annual scholarship offerings for the 2008-2009 school year.
The Foundation's Board of Directors has approved the awarding of thirty (30) partial college scholarships of up to $3,000 each, and the winners also will receive second-year scholarships for the same amount, contingent upon satisfactory academic achievement.
Eligible for the scholarships are CWA members, their spouses, children and grandchildren, including the dependents of retired, laid-off, or deceased members. Applicants must be high school graduates or high school students who will graduate during the year in which they apply.
Undergraduate and graduate students returning to school may also apply.
Applications will be available solely online for completion and submission to the Foundation's Foundation's website
Applications will be accepted until April 30, 2008. The winners will be chosen by lottery from those submitting the required essay.
