2017 College Scholarship

Once again this year, as a show of appreciation and support for the local labor community, Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers, P.C., is sponsoring a $1,000.00 scholarship. This annual scholarship was designed as a way of showing our support by recognizing and rewarding an outstanding student and relative of a local labor union member. To be eligible for this scholarship you must be attending a university/college in fall 2017 and be the relative of a local labor union member.

As it has done for the past several years, the Chattanooga Area Labor Council has graciously agreed to co-sponsor the scholarship again this year by contributing an equal amount towards the scholarship. This has made the scholarship actually worth $2,000.

The deadline for the scholarship application is May 26, 2017. To apply for this scholarship fill out the form below and submit an original, one page essay on the topic below.

Essay Topic:

Please write and attach a one-page essay explaining why your parent(s) or guardian(s) membership in a labor union is important to you and your family, and why you feel you are deserving of the Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers Labor Scholarship.
