About the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund

Welcome to the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund Information Center, Your One-Stop Shop for Information, Policy, Procedures and Forms.

James R. Hoffa became a Teamster member in 1934 and served as General President for 14 years, and, in recognition of his tireless service to the Union and its members, was honored as General President Emeritus for life. At the November 1999 General Executive Board meeting, General Secretary-Treasurer C. Thomas Keegel presented a resolution to establish the new scholarship fund. This site describes the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund and outlines eligibility requirements and application procedures. The deadline for applying to the scholarship fund is March 30, 2008.

The 2008-2009 scholarship information for high school seniors is now available.

One hundred scholarships will be awarded this program year. Applicants compete in one of the five geographic regions where the Teamster parentís local union is located.

Thirty-one of the awards total $10,000 each. These four-year scholarships are disbursed at the rate of $2,500 per year and are renewable annually. Sixty-nine of the awards are one-time $1,000 grants. These scholarships are disbursed to the college or university at the beginning of the recipientís freshman year.

Eligibility requirements and application procedures are the same for all awards. Recipients are selected by an impartial committee of university admissions and financial aid directors based on academic achievement, SAT/ACT scores, character, potential and financial need. We consider all applicants without regard to race, religion, gender, disability, or any other legally protected status.

Please note that all forms and brochures on this site require Adobe Acrobat Reader to open them. This is a free program available for download.
