2018/2019 Laborer's Local Union 894 Scholarship Program

Deadline: May 07 2018 at 11:59 PM EDT (Midnight)


Ten non-renewable scholarships of $1,000 will be awarded to dependents of Local No. 894 members. Recipients will be selected by College Now Greater Cleveland, Inc. (College Now). Scholarships will be awarded based on the applicant’s scholastic record, results of college admittance tests, i.e., ACT or SAT, and recommendations from individuals familiar with the applicant (not family). Financial need will not be a consideration.


Applicants must be dependents of members of Local No. 894 who are working at the calling and who have been in good standing for two years as of January 1, 2018. Dependents of Local 894 union officers and staff are not eligible. A “dependent” is any child/step-child of a Local 894 laborer for which you have legal custody and is listed as a dependent under Ohio Laborers’ Fringe Benefit Programs.

To qualify for this scholarship, graduating high school seniors must have maintained a minimum grade point average of a 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale) during his/her high school years, as well as current dependent college undergraduates. This is a one-year non-renewable scholarship award.

Additionally, the high school applicants must provide SAT or ACT scores. The applicant must have a composite score of 1020 or higher on the SAT and/or a combined score of 20 or higher on the ACT.

If a student receives other grants or scholarships that completely cover all direct and indirect costs of college, the student will forfeit the Local No. 894 scholarship.
