James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund

James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund
James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund awards scholarships each year to children and grandchildren of members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. One hundred scholarships are awarded annually. Thirty-one are renewable and sixty-nine are one time only.

Eligible students must be U.S. or Canadian citizens and plan to attend full-time a four-year college or university. They must also maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or above.

The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1999 as an independent non-profit organization. Its sole purpose is to raise money that enables them to offer scholarships to children and grandchildren of Teamsters members.

The Teamsters began in 1903 to give middle-class workers more on-the-job health and safety  protection as well as retirement benefits. James R. Hoffa became a Teamster member in 1934 and was General President for 14 years.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $10,000.
