2011 E. C. Hallbeck Scholarship Program, USA

The E.C. Hallbeck Memorial Scholarship awards $8000 ($2000 annually) to ten recipients (one male and one female from each of the five postal regions) to apply towards their four-year college tuition.
When the five predecessor unions merged to form the APWU in 1971, the new union decided to maintain an academic scholarship program created in 1969 by the United Federation of Postal Clerks (UFPC) as a tribute to UFPC president E.C. “Roy” Hallbeck. Today the APWU Hallbeck Memorial Scholarship program is a self-perpetuating financial base for providing significant educational assistance to children of APWU union members. It awards $2,000 per year for four consecutive years of college to one male and one female from each of the five postal regions.
