UAW Region 2-B has a long-standing and proud tradition of awarding scholarships each year to (11) eleven high school seniors from participating Local UAW families in Indiana and Ohio. The affiliated Local Union Presidents voted this year to raise the scholarships to twelve (12) 10,000 scholarships beginning in 2016.

The program was established to honor the memory of former Region 2-B Director and International Vice-President, Richard T. Gosser. Initially, in 1962, a single, $2000 scholarship was awarded. A foundation was established, and through contributions, the award dollar amount and number of recipients grew over the years.

As a means to keep the foundation strong and the scholarships growing even larger, Retired Regional Director, Lloyd Mahaffey, in 2004, established the first annual Richard T. Gosser Golf Outing. Local Unions, units and employers from around the state of Ohio and Indiana field teams. All proceeds go directly to the foundation and (12) twelve, $10,000 Scholarships are awarded each year.

Including the 2014-2015 winners, 308 students have received Gosser scholarships.

Region 2-B UAW Retirees also award (6) six $1000 scholarship awards to the finalists, investing in the future of an additional 107 students. In 2016, the Region 2-B Retirees are raising the (6) six scholarships to $1500.

In all the Gosser awards and the Retiree awards total over $2 million in scholarships awarded over the last 52 years.

The Scholarship Program is open to any Region 2-B Local Union, simply by making a one-time contribution of sixty (0.60) cents per member into the fund. The Local Union must have been a participating member prior to the application deadline before Scholarship applications will be accepted from their Local Union.

Parents can obtain the application forms for their graduating senior from their Local Union President or Chairperson. The application deadline each year is October 15. This is a firm date and there is never an exception made.

Awards are made based on ACT scores, class rank, extra-curricular activites, letters of recommendation, personality traits and leadership abilities. Applications are assessed by a seven member team of prominent community leaders and educators, who then select the winners.

Attached below is the application form, guidelines for applicants and information for Local Unions who would like to begin participation.   Click on the link below to register for the ACT and send your scores to our office by listing code 9894.
