12-14-2021

Local 1224 Members, The application period is now open for the Teamster 2022 scholarship awards! If you have a child or financial dependent pursuing a college or vocational education, you should be aware of the following three scholarship opportunities available to high school seniors this year: Hoffa Academic Scholarship, Hoffa Vocational Scholarship, and the Joint Council 41 Scholarship. Since 2007, 49 children or dependents of Local 1224 members have been awarded a scholarship through one of the following funds, including several who received the full $10,000 award. You can view scholarship information (also provided below) and all of our previous winners on the union’s website: https://www.apa1224.org/all_scholarships_mbr.aspx. -----------------------------------------------------------------------

1) JRHMSF Academic Scholarship

Application Deadline: March 1, 2022 The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund awards scholarships annually to outstanding high school seniors. Academic scholarships range from $1,000 to $10,000 for high school seniors planning to attend a four-year college or university. Although the scholarship application is conducted entirely online, there is still a verification portion where the Local must verify that the member, whose child is submitting the application, is a member in good standing. In order to do this, the application process asks for the name and email address of the person doing the verification. You should list Secretary Treasurer Mark Mullis (MMullis@apa1224.org) on your online application. When you place this information on the application and submit it for verification, the site is supposed to send an email to Mark Mullis, the verifier, containing a unique password needed to access the application. In previous years we have experienced some issues with that verification email making it to our inbox. In order to ensure that everyone who submits an application has their member status verified, we are asking you to do the following: 1) After submitting the name and email of the verifier, select the Print Instruction button. 2) In those instructions should be a 13-character Password (it may not always be 13 characters). Write down/Print Screen this password and email it directly to mmullis@apa1224.org. 3) Include your name, airline you work for and the name of your child submitting the application. 4) In the subject line, please indicate “RE: Hoffa Scholarship Submission”. 5) Please cc: Jenna Sheeley (JSheeley@apa1224.org) at the Local 1224 office so she also can help ensure applications have been verified.
