2016 PowerForward DuPage Scholarship
In late spring of 2016, the PowerForward DuPage Scholarship Application will be available and several $1,000 scholarships will be awarded again. These scholarships are awarded for one year and may be applied for again in each of the four years while attending school. This scholarship is intended to provide support to full time students accepted at or attending a four year accredited college undergraduate program and awards are to be used for tuition and/or books, room and board expenses. Our goal is to provide college tuition assistance to the children of IBEW Local 701 members and IBEW Local 701 signatory contractors. IBEW Local 701 members are also eligible.
Please check our website at www.powerforwarddupage.com under "members" to view and/or print the 2016 application when it becomes available.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact Lauren in the PowerForward DuPage office at (630) 393-1701 Extension 5 or (630) 791-2660.
