The deadline to apply for a 2015 IAM Scholarship Award will be here before you know it. Applications must be postmarked no later than February 25, 2015 to be considered.
The competition is open each year to eligible IAM members in the United States and Canada and eligible children in their last year of high school. Scholarships will be awarded to applicants entering or currently enrolled in college or vocational tech. A panel of impartial judges decides the winners.
“The scholarship program is a great way for children of IAM members and for members themselves to continue their education,” said IAM Safety and Health Department Director Mike Flynn, whose department administers the popular program.

The IAM Scholarship Fund, which is used exclusively to make these awards possible, was first established by delegates to the 1960 IAM Grand Lodge Convention.
