2013 Plumbing Industry Application

Today many of our most promising young people cannot attend college due to financial barriers. Developing the next generation of leaders will require supporting qualified students who are driven to learn yet may not have the resources to continue their studies. Therefore, the board of directors of the Plumbing Council of Chicagoland has decided to sponsor four scholarships annually. These scholarships will be awarded to a Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Union Local 130, U.A. family member (including if member is a legal guardian of the applicant). Members must be in continuous good standing membership and must work for a company under contract with Local 130. Family members of the employees of the Plumbing Council, Plumbing Contractors Association or the Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Union 130, U.A. and Plumbing Council Contractors are eligible.

Winning a scholarship can be an effortless way of boosting the recipient’s income. Though the competition for the scholarship will be high, it is definitely worth applying. Awards will be based on academic achievement and potential, character, leadership, social awareness and career goal and in the event of a tie between applicants, financial need will be considered. An independent expert from Loyola University Scholarship Program will review all applicants and decide the final recipients. We thank him in advance for his assistance and expertise on behalf of our industry. This program includes high school graduates and students pursing an undergraduate degree currently attending an accredited college or university. All applicants will be notified and the scholarship winners will be featured in the Plumbers Quarterly Newsletter.
