IBEW Founders' Scholarship



                            IBEW Founders' Scholarship

The IBEW Founders' Scholarship honors the dedicated wiremen and linemen who organized the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.  Each year the officers of the IBEW are pleased to offer its working members scholarships on a competitive basis. It is hoped that the awards will not only contribute to the personal development of our members but also steward the electrical industry that our founders envisioned.

                        Scholarship application

All IBEW members who have been in continuous good standing for four years preceding May 1 of the scholarship year in which they plan to apply are eligible for the IBEW Founders' Scholarship.  Please note, if a member has been on honorary withdrawal at any time during the aforementioned period, he/she will not be eligible to participate.

Spouses or children of IBEW members are not eligible for the IBEW Founders' Scholarship. Union Plus has a scholarship that is available for IBEW members, as well as their spouses and dependent children.  Please visit the Union Plus website
