WNY Council of the CWA - Eugene Mays Scholarship Application 2018
The WNY Council of the CWA Eugene Mays Scholarship fund has been contributing to the education of CWA members and their families for decades. The Council is made up of ten (10) CWA Locals and the Retirees Chapter across our eight (8) Western New York Counties. The Mays foundation is funded by the Eugene J. Mays annual golf tournament and the Eugene Mays annual award dinner. Since this scholarship fund was established the Council has increased both the number and the amount of scholarships awarded annually. This coming year the Council will again award eight (8) scholarships of $1500 each, through random draw, to a CWA member, child, grandchild, or spouse from a participating Local within the WNYCWA Council.
CWA members of Locals participating in the WNY Council of the CWA, their children, grandchildren, and spouse (including dependents of retired or deceased CWA members) may apply. The applicant must be a FULL TIME student of an accredited two (2) or four (4) year college for the fall 2018 semester. Verification of enrollment is required by no later than Friday, June 22, 2018 or the scholarship will be forfeited and an alternate selected.
No specific area of study is required. The deadline to submit application is Friday, November 10 2017. The eight (8) $1500 scholarships will be determined by random draw held on Tuesday, November 21, 2017. Winners will be notified via US Mail.
The eight $1500 Scholarships will be presented to the scholarship award winners at our Eugene Mays Memorial Awards Dinner on Friday, January 19th, 2018 and/or after the award winner submits verification of enrollment thereafter, until the stated deadline of Friday, June 22, 2018.
Scholarship award winners will be invited to say a few words on "What it means to be part of a UNION family" at the awards dinner on Friday, January 19, 2018.
