2018 Scholarship Program

Local 1014 is once again accepting applications for educational scholarships through the Henry J. Dunn Scholarship Program. Information and applications have been sent to all high school guidance offices in Camden County. The application packet is available below.

The scholarships are a one-time award paid directly to the college or trade school attended by the recipient, after the student successfully earns 12 credits during his/her first and/or second semester or one year of trade school and submits an official college transcript or equivalent documentation to the CWA Local 1014 office. The number and amount of the scholarships will be determined by the Scholarship Committee prior to the selections. However, for many years, the Fund has been able to award a $500 scholarship to every eligible applicant.

Qualifications:

1. The student must be a child of a CWA Local 1014 member in good standing (current with full dues payments).

2. The student must have demonstrated a conscientious effort in his or her studies and be certified as being prepared for college/university or trade school course work by his or her high school guidance office.

3. The student must be a high school senior graduating in Spring ’17 and of good moral character.

Students meeting the qualifications described above and wishing to apply for a scholarship must complete the program application. The packets include the application, a CWA Local 1014 membership confirmation form (to be completed by the parent), and a certification of preparedness for college or trade school form (to be completed by the high school guidance office). The application, membership confirmation form, certification of preparedness and a copy of student’s high school transcript must be submitted to the CWA Local 1014 office by the end of business on Friday, March 2, 2018. We prefer that the applications be submitted directly by the high school guidance office, but will accept complete applications submitted by students.

All eligible applications will be made part of a random drawing at the March 27, 2018 CWA Local 1014 General Membership Meeting. You can be assured that each eligible application will be given an equal opportunity for selection.

If you have any questions regarding the scholarship program, please contact the CWA Local 1014 office at (856) 541-4191.
