Dependents of Boilermaker members are eligible for scholarships of up to $5,000. Beginning in 2022, the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers awards up to $100,000 worth of scholarships to dependents of members, including those in Canada and the U.S.
Scholarship awards are based upon a variety of factors, including academic achievement, extra-curricular and outside school activities, career goals, and performance on a typed essay.
Boilermaker scholarships are open to high school seniors who will be entering their first year of academic study at a degree-granting, accredited college or university within one year of their high school graduation and are dependents of Boilermaker members in good standing (includes son, daughter, legally adopted child or dependent of a member in good standing).
Scholarship candidates must submit all of the following:
- The completed online Scholarship Application
- Proof of relationship or dependency to a Boilermaker member*
- Official high school transcript
- A 350 word (minimum) to 500 word (maximum) typed essay on the following topic

* Applicants must submit proof of relationship or dependency to the Boilermaker member in the form of a copy of their birth certificate, proof of legal adoption, tax return, or current health insurance coverage, via secure upload or mail (postmarked by March 1, 2022) to:
