2020 S. Frank "Bud" Raftery Scholarship Program

20 Nov 2019

At the 25th General Convention held in Washington, DC, in August 1984, to honor his service to the International Union all his adult life, and his accomplishments and progressive thinking, a resolution was passed creating the S. Frank “Bud" Raftery Scholarship Fund.

At the 27th General Convention held Washington, DC, in August 1994, General President A. L. “Mike" Monroe and the General Executive Board, who believe strongly in the principles for which the Scholarship Fund was created, and the need to continue and enhance this Convention theme of Organizing, Education and Training designed to bring all of our members and their families into the strategic planning and operation of our International Union through educational programs, passed a resolution to increase the S. Frank “Bud" Raftery Scholarship Fund to $20,000, allowing for (10) scholarships of $2,000.00 annually.

This fine program is available to sons, daughters, or legally adopted dependents of IUPAT members in good standing to apply for scholarships.

All applicants must submit an essay, not less than 1,000 or more than 2,000 words on an essay topic selected by the IUPAT Scholarship Committee.

Scholarship applications must be submitted and received by January 31, 2020.
