Dear Sisters and Brothers:
     The IBEW Foundersí Scholarship honors the dedicated wiremen and lineman 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. An application for the IBEW Foundersí Scholarship (Form 172 ) is enclosed. This form can be copied and is also available on the IBEW website ( ). In an effort to make the IBEW Foundersí Scholarship as inclusive as possible, we no longer require applicants to take the SAT or ACT to be eligible.

     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 Foundersí 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 Foundersí 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 ( for more information about other scholarship opportunities.

     I encourage all interested eligible members to participate in the IBEW Foundersí Scholarship Program. Please make the Foundersí Scholarship opportunity known to your members and urge them to apply.

 With best wishes, I am

 Fraternally yours,
 Edwin D. Hill
 International President
