ELECTRICAL INDUSTRY SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS PROGRAM 

In 1990, the Electrical Board initiated a new Awards Program. Under the direction of Nancy Martin, Martin Electrical Sales, the Awards Committee decided to eliminate our “Student Award” program which awarded scholarships to students from the five area universities and established the “Electrical Industry Scholarship Award”.

These scholarships are awarded each year during the Electrical Week Luncheon. Each recipient receives a monetary scholarship award, a plaque and a commemorative picture. The Electrical Board established this scholarship program to enable EBMI members and their immediate family an opportunity to apply for our scholarship, provided they meet certain criteria set down by the Awards Committee.

REMINDER …

The Electrical Board Foundation was formed in 1991 to provide the Industry Scholarship Awards to EBMI members and their immediate families.

This program is funded through many different programs. The Jackpot Sales at EBMI’s Industry Luncheons, GOLFfest, Sportsman’s Holiday, Electrical Week Luncheon and Christmas Mixer all help to support this Foundation.

There are other ways in which to contribute. Many of our members contribute to the Foundation when they pay their dues and we sincerely appreciate these donations. You can deduct the contribution to the Foundation from your taxes. No matter how small or large the donation, all the monies contribute to the goal of helping our members’ families receive scholarships to further their education.

Several organizations, companies and individuals have also provided full ($1,000) or half ($500) scholarships. We thank these people for their generous support of our Foundation each year. If half or full scholarships are donated, the donor is given recognition by EBMI at the Electrical Week Luncheon and in the FLASH.

At the suggestion of members, we also receive donations in memory/honor of a loved one. Many times, people have been very active in the electrical industry and/or EBMI. What a wonderful way to remember/honor them by donating to the Scholarship Foundation. EBMI has envelopes available upon request. In addition, EBMI sends a letter to the appropriate person to recognize such donations. Due to the response from this program, a few of our half or full scholarships were donated in memory/honor of a person in the electrical industry.

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE FOLLOWING FULL/HALF SCHOLARSHIP DONORS

Electrical Representatives Organization (ERO) – since 1994

John MacArthur – since 1996

International Association of Electrical    Inspectors – St. Louis  Chapter in honor and memory of Walter Koessel – since 2000

Friends of Michael A. Postiglione – since 2005

Schaeffer Marketing Group – 2014 – In memory of Ricky and Joe Schaeffer

And we always appreciate the generous donations by all the members who contribute to this scholarship program each year.
