Now Accepting Applications for 2021 David Ellis Scholarships

The David Ellis Scholarship is a health and safety scholarship award available to children and grandchildren of any Steelworker member.

For 2021, District 3 Director Stephen Hunt is offering five scholarships of $500 to help selected high school students continue their education at university, college or another educational institution. The David Ellis Scholarship is part of the New Worker Awareness Program.

The scholarship is only available to high school students who are the child or grandchild of a member of the United Steelworkers. Scholarships will be awarded to eligible students who produce winning essays or videos on health and safety themes. Winning essays or videos will be selected by a panel of judges.

Students may submit an essay or YouTube video-based one of the two following themes:

  • Spreading the word: How I would make high school students aware of their risks and their rights in the workplace.
  • How to be a workplace survivor: My personal experience with health and safety on the job.
