We believe in the power of education to transform lives.
Education is what sets union carpenters apart from the rest. Our support of education, regardless of what form it takes, is an integral part of our union values. The Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters Scholarship Fund was created to help union families with paying for college education for their children. Though originally introduced in 1996 in New Jersey, this scholarship is now available to all members throughout our entire jurisdiction. Since its inception, over 400 scholarships has been awarded, totaling well over $2.5 million.
The eligibility requirements are minimal so we encourage all families to consider applying.
This scholarship program is funded through an Annual Eastern Atlantic States Scholarship Fund Golf Outing with generous donations from various individuals, local unions, other Regional Councils, and partnered organizations.
