The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters is committed to improving the lives of its members and their families. One way that we accomplish this is through our annual NASRCC scholarship. Scholarships are available to dependents of members (or members themselves) who plan to attend an accredited two or four-year college/university or vocational program. Last year, 115 applicants received awards, with a top prize of $7,500.
The eligibility guidelines established by the Scholarship Committee can be found here. Applications may be filled out online by clicking here. You will need to upload a copy of your essay, proof of enrollment, and a copy of your transcript in the online form.
Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 14, 2023. Anything received after this time will not be accepted.
Applicants will be required to write an essay of between 500 and 1000 words on the following topic:
Joe Biden has called himself the most pro-union president in our lifetime. Evaluate that claim by discussing what he has done, directly and indirectly, to benefit unions and union workers. Create context by comparing his actions—positive and negative—with other recent presidents, particularly Donald Trump.
Note: Essays that do not meet the word count criteria will be disqualified. If you use outside references or sources please cite them.
To eliminate bias, the scholarship committee is blind to the identity of the applicant. Essays are numerically coded to prevent any reader from having knowledge of the writer. Winners of the top two prizes will be asked to read their essays at the June 2023 delegate meeting. Persons awarded first or second place in a prior year are ineligible for first or second place in subsequent years.
Please read the application guidelines and then fill out the online application.
