The deadline to apply for a 2012 IAM Scholarship Award is fast-approaching. Applications must be postmarked no later than February 24, 2012 to be considered.
Information on eligibility requirements and how to request an application is available online at http://www.goiam.org/index.php/headquarters/departments/scholarship/8956-2012-scholarship-competition-is-now-open. Application packets have been mailed to all local and district lodges.
“The scholarship program is a great way for children of IAM members, and for members themselves, to continue their education,” says IAM Safety & Health Department Director Mike Flynn, whose department administers the popular program.
The competition is open each year to eligible IAM members in the United States and Canada and their eligible children. 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.
