Disbursement of Scholarship Award

Scholarship Award winners at the time of enrolling in an accredited college or institution should inform the college that an official letter from the college/institution verifying their enrollment must be forwarded to TWU Local 106 - Transit Supervisors at 5768 Mosholu Avenue, Bronx, NY 10471.  Upon receipt and verification of such letter, TWU Local 106 - Transit Supervisors will forward to the college/institution the proceeds of the scholarship award. 

Winners must use the proceeds of the award for qualified educational expenses during the 2016 calendar year.  If the winner fails to use the proceeds in the specified time, the award will be forfeited and awarded to the next alternate.

Members must be in good standing when the scholarship award is disbursed.  The scholarship proceeds may be used only for tuition, college fees, or room and board while attending an accredited college or institution.  No cash awards will be paid directly to the winners.  Winners may re-apply in succeeding years for further awards. In no instance shall the scholarship awarded be more than actual college costs incurred by recipient.

PLEASE NOTE! All applications must be returned to TWU Local 106 - Transit Supervisors by close of business on Tuesday, December 15, 2015, in order to be eligible for the scholarship.  The drawing will be held on Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at the PM General Membership/Holiday Meeting.  Good luck!
