The IAM Scholarship Fund, which is used exclusively to make these awards possible, was established by the delegates of the 1960 IAM Grand Lodge Convention. The competition is open to members of the IAM and their children throughout the United States and Canada and help towards a Bachelor’s degree or a two-year vocational/technical certification and are determined in a competition judged by a special Selection Committee.

Awards to Children of Members are $1,000 per academic year. All awards are renewed each year until a Bachelor’s degree is obtained up to a maximum of four years. Vocational/Technical School – $2,000 per year until certification is reached up to a maximum of two years.
