2019 BOSTON BRANCH #34 LETTER CARRIERS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The National Association of Letter Carriers has always sought in every way possible to foster the well-being of its Members. To that end, your Joseph P. Considine Branch #34 has established a scholarship program to help qualified students among the children of our Members – active, retired or deceased.
Each year, six (6) one-year college scholarships carrying stipends of $1000 each will be awarded by a committee of Boston area educators to the highest ranking candidates. Academic and personal promise will be their only criteria. No Member of the National Association of Letter Carriers will be involved in the decisions in any manner.
Winners of a Branch #34 Letter Carriers Scholarship must attend an accredited two- or four-year college or university offering a course of instruction leading to bachelor’s degree. The scholarship award will be sent in the student’s name, payable to the college at which he/she is enrolled. The stipend will be credited to the recipient’s account and used in accordance with the scholarship policy of the college.
The student must be a legally dependent of a Member of the NALC, Branch #34. He or she must be a high school graduate who in 2019 will enter the freshman class of an accredited college or university.
