    The Alan F. Wohlstetter Scholarship Fund (AFWSF) is officially accepting applications for Alan F. Wohlstetter Scholarship Program. Each year, the AFWSF awards up to ten (10) $5,000 USD scholarships to students pursuing a degree in the moving, relocation, forwarding and logistics industry or related field.

    The scholarship is open to applicants from around the world. Students must be an employee of a member of the IAM in good standing or a dependent of an employee of a member of the IAM in good standing. Furthermore, students must have completed 45 semester hours of study at a regionally-accredited college or university and/or have worked in the moving, relocation, forwarding and logistics industry or a related field for one year prior to applying. We strongly encourage you to review the Scholarship eligibility requirements to determine if you qualify for the scholarship before applying.

    Each year, applicants for the Alan F. Wohlstetter Scholarship will also have the option to be considered for the Jackie Agner Scholarship. Winners of this scholarship will have demonstrated the same attributes that Jackie exemplified in her charitable and philanthropic efforts. Namely, qualified applicants will have demonstrated significant involvement with their school and/or community through volunteer service and charity work. If selected, the recipient would receive an extra $2,500 USD in addition to the $5,000 USD awarded for the AFW Scholarship. 

    The deadline for applications is May 1, 2019. The application form for the Alan F. Wohlstetter Scholarship can be found on the Scholarship webpage.
