Joe Beirne Scholarship Program

Date: April 12, 2022

The CWA Joe Beirne Foundation was established in October 1974 by the Communications Workers of America Executive Board in the name of and to honor the memory of the founding President of CWA, who served for more than 30 years.

In his capacity as the first CWA President, Joe Beirne took great pride in the role he played in the fields of education and learning and other areas of social concern. On April 26, 1999, the CWA Executive Board voted to combine the Joseph Anthony Beirne Memorial Foundation and the Ray Hackney Scholarship Fund, thereby creating the CWA Joe Beirne Foundation. 

The deadline for applications is April 30, 2022. For more information, please visit the CWA website.
