TEAMSTERS JOINT COUNCIL 25 WOMEN'S COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES NEW SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM FOR TEAMSTERS
Posted On: Nov 08, 2013
Five $1,000 Scholarships Will Be Awarded to Members Continuing Their Education

The Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee proudly announces the launch of its scholarship program, which is aimed at assisting Teamsters who are continuing their education.

The Women’s Committee will award five $1,000 scholarships to members who demonstrate a desire to excel and reach their education goals.

“The Women’s Committee has made a strong commitment to the continued education of Teamster women, and this scholarship program is a direct result of that commitment,” said Debra Simmons-Peterson, President of the Women’s Committee and Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 743.

The Women’s Committee, which was founded in 2009 by Joint Council 25 President John T. Coli, brings together representatives from each Joint Council 25 affiliate to strengthen communication and leadership opportunities for women throughout our union.

All applicants must be Women’s Committee members and Teamster members in good standing and must be enrolled or enrolling in an undergraduate college, university or community college program, graduate school or technical or vocational program. Women and men are eligible to apply. Additionally, applicants must submit an essay on the topic: “How will obtaining your education empower you as a Teamster, and how will you use that empowerment to help fellow Teamsters?”

Completed applications and essays must be forwarded to the applicant’s local union for verification of Teamster membership, and the local union will submit the paperwork to the Women’s Committee. The deadline for applications is Jan. 17, 2014.

Scholarship recipients are expected to be announced at the Women’s Committee’s Second Annual Gala Dinner Dance on March 8, 2014.
