The Plumbing Industry Council recently awarded its 2011 Labor and Management Scholarships at its Annual Scholarship Awards Program. Each year, the Plumbing Industry Council awards two scholarships to high school seniors: One scholarship is awarded to a son or daughter of a plumber member of Plumbers’ & Pipefitters’ Local #562 and one scholarship is awarded to a son or daughter of a contractor member of the Plumbing Industry Council. The scholarships are a one-time $2,000.00 monetary award to be used at a university or college of the recipient’s choice.
In addition to the above requirements, applicants must meet very stringent eligibility requirements including a rank in the upper one-half of their graduating class and ACT or SAT scores that also rank in the upper one-half of the nation. A third party selection committee judges the applicants based on:
a. Academic standing of student during four years of high school
b. College entrance exam scores
c. Extracurricular activities and leadership
d. Character reference, an original essay and other pertinent factors
