Local 8D has been providing ten (10) $1,000 scholarships each year to college students whose parents are Union members and we will be doing so again this year. Five (5) scholarships are awarded to the children of Horizon Beverage members and five (5) to the children of United Liquors members. To be eligible, the students must be enrolled in a college program.**
The Awards are picked at a Drawing that takes place at our annual general membership meeting. That meeting will take place this year on Friday, December 8, 2017 at the Holiday Inn in Taunton, MA at 7:30 a.m. The Scholarship application is available here: scholarship-application.
If your student’s name is drawn then s/he must produce proof of enrollment to actually receive the Award. Proof can be a registrar’s notice, school produced class schedule, or any other document that demonstrates that your son or daughter is actually enrolled.
If you have an eligible college student, please complete the application and return it by Friday, December 1, 2017. The applications may be returned by mail, to Anne Sills, UFCW Local 8D, 111 Devonshire Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02109; by return email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 617-742-2187. The application should be accompanied by proof of enrollment.
**It is the Executive Board’s policy that students may not receive Awards more than two years in a row. Therefore, students who received Awards in each of the last two years are ineligible from participating in this year’s drawing but may apply again next year.
