Happy New Year Local 1109. With 2019 here, many of our high school seniors are deep into their college applications process and some may have already decided on which school they will be attending. To help defray some of the cost of your child's education, CWA 1109, the CWA National Union, Union Plus and our vendor Nettworth Financial Group will be providing scholarships for qualified applicants. Below is information on these four scholarships, including application dates and the necessary forms needed to apply. Good luck to everyone applying.
