Each year, children and dependents of Teamsters have a great opportunity to receive tuition assistance from the James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship Fund (JRHMSF).
The JRHMSF application process for the 2021 Academic and Training/Vocational Scholarship opens on November 30, 2020.
The scholarship is available to high school seniors who are sons, daughters, or financial dependents of Teamster members.
