Got a kid who's headed off to trade school or college? In the last few days, two more scholarship opportunities have opened up for Teamster families.

First, our Teamsters 117 Jeff Alfieri Scholarship is now accepting applications. 

The scholarship is awarded to outstanding students whose parents are members of Teamsters Local 117. 

The founders of the scholarship fund, Ralph and Sue Alfieri, established the scholarship in memory of their son Jeff Alfieri, a former Business Representative with Teamsters Local 117.

In addition, the Pierce County Central Labor Council is now accepting applications for the Jerry Beckendorf Community Service Scholarship. The scholarship recognizes outstanding student volunteerism and encourages future generations of Union advocates.

Since 2003, over $100,000 has been awarded to 130 graduating seniors of Union families living in Pierce County by local Unions, businesses, and individuals to assist graduates in achieving their dreams of attending college, university, or trade or technical school.​

Applications are open to Pierce County graduating seniors who have shown dedication to community service and who have a parent or guardian that is a member of a Union.

For more information please download an application today. The 2020 scholarship cycle will close on March 13, 2020.
