2020-2021 NWPA ALF Scholarship Winners Announced

First, let us thank every student who applied for our scholarships and all of our judges who reviewed the essays and helped determine our winners. We congratulate those students for demonstrating how determined they were to obtain the necessary funding to further their education.  They have shown more initiative than most of their peers. Our judges commented that they had an extremely difficult time selecting one winner from the Essays they were judging because so many were excellent. We are proud of all of you!

We had twenty-eight judges total who served on a panel of judges for a given Scholarship (The NWPA ALF Scholarship, the David A Bielski Educational Scholarship, the Dr. David Ferster Educational Scholarship) and we thank each of them for giving us time from their already busy schedules.  Our judges were notified of who they selected as winners. When they review the essays they were assigned a letter and all identification was removed.
Andrew Harkulich our Chairman and one of our judges contacted the winners to inform them before we informed the public of the results. Our scholarship winners are as follows;
NWPA Area Labor Federation Scholarship was won by Letter "H", KIARA BAKER whose father is a member of UBC 420,
David A Bielski Educational Scholarship was won by letter "E", MEGAN KOMA whose mother is a member of AFT 2099, and
Dr. David Ferster Educational Scholarship was won by letter "A", DYLAN LEONE whose father is a member of NALC 84.
To read the winning essays please access the July edition of the NWPA ALF NEWS in the newsletter section of this website.
If you know any of our winners, please congratulate them and encourage them to join us on June 24th.
We reminded all of the applicants that they would be able to apply again next year.
We made them aware there are two articles on our website (http://unionhall.aflcio.org/nwpaalf),  about additional funding for education under the category of Resources: "Educational Funding  Opportunities" and "Additional Scholarship Links", we hope they will check them out. We wish all of the applicants well as they go forward with your education and encourage them to apply again next year.
