Thank you and good luck to all who applied for The 2017 Carl Parsell Scholarship. Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2017-18 school year.

In March and April, the Scholarship Selection Committee begins the selection process which is completed in May. Scholarship recipients will be notified of their status by the end of May 2017. Carl Parsell Scholarship winners will be formally recognized during the 27th Annual Carl Parsell Memorial Golf Outing on June 8, 2017.

Carl Parsell Scholarships may be used to cover a portion of educational expenses, including tuition, living expenses, and other required fees during the 2017-18 school year. Scholars may use the award to attend any United States accredited university, college, community college, junior college, two or four year accredited degree-granting institution, or vocational training institution that grants a certification or license. Scholarship candidates must have completed a high school education or its equivalent, on or prior to June 30, 2017.

Funds derived from The Carl Parsell Memorial Scholarship Golf Outing determine the number of scholarships to be awarded annually. Due to an increase in funds raised because of the excellent turnout at the 2016 Annual Carl Parsell Golf Outing, MAFF will be offering up to three scholarships this year to family members of union members. The maximum award available per student is $2,500. In July and August, The Carl Parsell Scholarship Fund mails Scholarship checks to each Scholar’s college or university.
