Congratulations were awarded to this year’s ten scholarship winners, all children or grandchildren of Local 825 members. Each will receive $2,500 per year for four years, totaling $10,000 over the course of their education.
Funds are raised throughout the year through the generosity of our members and friends of the Local and with the help of volunteers from the local, the funds office and training centers.
The applicants are reviewed and winners are selected by a team of educators from the Rutgers University School for Management and Labor Relations, headed by Carla A. Katz, Esq., and James Cooney, Esq. Applications are evaluated based on transcripts, SAT scores, individual essays and letters of recommendation.
Three of the ten won awards in specific categories. Seven were awarded scholarships based on academic criteria. Here are this year’s winners.
