IBEW Founders' Scholarship

The IBEW Founders’ Scholarship  honors the dedicated wiremen and linemen who, on November 28, 1891, organized the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Each year the officers of the IBEW are pleased to offer its working members scholarships on a competitive basis. It is hoped that the awards will not only contribute to the personal development of our members but also steward the electrical industry that our founders envisioned.  This award is for up to $200 per semester credit hour or $134 per trimester credit hour at any accredited college or university toward an associate’s, bachelor’s, or postgraduate degree in a field that will further the electrical industry overall (as determined by the Founders’ Scholarship Administrator). The maximum distribution is $24,000 per person over a period not to exceed 8 years.  Deadline for the scholarship is May 1
