The James R. Hoffa Memorial Scholarship
Apr 19, 2021
James R. Hoffa became a Teamster member in 1934 and served as General President for 14 years, and, in recognition of his tireless service to the union and its members, was honored as General President Emeritus for life. At the November 1999 General Executive Board meeting, then-General Secretary-Treasurer C. Thomas Keegel presented a resolution to establish the new scholarship fund. This site describes the James R.

Harry Polland/Robert Morales Scholarship Program
May 06, 2021
This scholarship is named for Harry Polland, the long-time Joint Council 7 Economist who was responsible for negotiating and improving Teamster contracts throughout California; and Robert Morales, Secretary-Treasurer to Teamsters Joint Council 7 and Teamsters Local 350 as well as Director of the IBT's Solid Waste Division, had the ability to negotiate the best Waste Division contracts in the country and to lobby in the country and to lobby in the City and County of San Francisco for workers' rights. Although both small in stature, they were giants in the world of collective bargaining. This Scholarship is intended as a tribute to Harry and Bob's efforts to ensure that Teamster jobs always provide the wages and benefits necessary to support families and enable Teamsters to send their children to college. Application and required documents must be received at the Local Union office or postmarked no later than July 1st.
