Teamsters Canada Member Scholarship
Unlike other scholarships, the Teamsters Canada Member Scholarship was specially created for current members and not their children or financial dependents. The program is perfect for members who wish to continue their education, sign up for driving courses or a trade school, or branch out into a different industry.
Our scholarships are meant to help members afford tuition for post-secondary and certificate programs. The application process involves writing a short essay. The deadline is October 31 of each year. Five $2,500 scholarships will be awarded.
James R. Hoffa Scholarships
The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund was created to help the sons, daughters or financial dependents of eligible Teamsters members pay for tuition at post-secondary institutions. Students in their last year of high school or cégep can apply by March 1 for a scholarship of up to $10,000 if they’re planning on enrolling in a college or university program. They can also apply for a scholarship of up to $2,000 if they plan on attending a training or vocational program in a Teamster-represented industry.
Local Union Scholarships
