Congratulations to the award recipients of the JIB Scholarship Program! The 73rd JIB Scholarship Breakfast was a successful and safe event, even under limited circumstances.

Since 1949, the JIB has awarded over $30 million in merit-based scholarships, and award recipients have gone on to earn 2,400 academic degrees. Through contributions under the collective bargaining agreement, the Educational & Cultural Trust Fund provides close to 40 annual merit-based scholarship awards worth $30,000 each. Since 2001, entrepreneur, scientist, and honorary IBEW member Greg Olsen — whose father was a Local 3 “A” journeyman — has generously funded five grants through the Sigurd B. Olsen Foundation for science majors and an additional grant for the children of Sign Division members.
