LOCAL 4950

In order to recognize the achievements of high school students and to assist them in furthering their education, the United Steel-workers Amalgamated Local Union 4950, offers a scholarship program to provide financial assistance to sons, daughters and legal wards of current members in good standing and all former members who retired as a member in good standing from Local Union 4950.

A “member in good standing” is defined for this purpose as one who pays dues or is exonerated from dues payment in compliance with Article XIV of the Constitution of the International Union.

USW Amalgamated Local Union 4950 will make available four (4) five-hundred dollar ($500) scholarships to be used for education at any recognized college, university, or vocational school in the United States or Canada.

No restriction is placed on eligibility because of race, creed, color, gender, nationality or political affiliation. Only high school students graduating during the award year (2015) shall be eligible.

An award recipient shall be declared ineligible and all financial assistance payments will cease immediately in the event that the qualifying member leaves the bargaining unit.

Scholarship recipients will be selected from a lottery-type drawing from all applicants who have a minimum 2.0 grade point average (GPA) and will be registered as a full-time student as defined by the applicable college, university or vocational school. Three (3) alternates will also be selected in the event an award recipient is later declared ineligible.

No recipient shall be eligible for more than one (1) of the $500 scholarships sponsored by the local union. Payment of the award will be made directly to the student upon providing the Financial Secretary of Local 4950 with proof of admittance and attendance.

All matters pertaining to the selection of scholarship winners will be decided by the Scholarship Committee and their decision is final. The winners of the awards will be notified by mail along with announcements placed on workplace bulletin boards.

The granting of a scholarship does not guarantee entrance to a college, university or vocational school and the local union assumes no responsibility for admission. All negotiations for admittance are the responsibility of the scholarship applicant.

Completed applications must be submitted so as to be in possession of the Scholarship Committee no later than 4:30 P.M. May 12th, 2015. Blank applications can be obtained at Ronn Hall, the Mine Union Office or from any local union officer.
