Charlie Chatham Scholarship Recipients

The Charlie Chatham Scholarships are named in honor of a deceased UAW Local 211 member. Brother Chatham worked tirelessly to promote our local union and gave tirelessly of himself to charitable causes within the Defiance community. He was a friend to many and kind to all. Brother Chatham is sorely missed but not forgotten. Young persons who are rewarded with the Charlie Chatham Scholarships will know about his sacrifices for others and their causes. Hopefully, they will pay tribute to his memory by doing likewise.

The scholarship committee screens entries and makes sure college scholarships are awarded fairly. In 2009, UAW Local 211 awarded ten (10) $500 scholarships. The particular number and amount of the scholarships vary by year as determined by the Executive Board. These one-year scholarship awards are disbursed by the institution of higher learning. To be eligible, the applicant must be a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior in an institution of higher learning or a high school senior. Only one (1) scholarship is awarded per UAW sponsor. The committee further reviews and updates the rules and qualifications necessary to be eligible for UAW Local 211 scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a lottery-type drawing held at the GM Unit union meeting in December.
