George M. Lambert Scholarship

Our Pipeliners Voluntary Fund Scholarship Award program was developed in 1969 by George M. Lambert, who recognized that the continued progress of organized labor depends on educating our youth so that they may promote unionism in their professions. Our Voluntary Fund Scholarship Program is an investment in the future of our members, their families, and our local union.


The program was renamed The George M. Lambert Scholarship Award Program on December 10, 1999 to honor Brother Lambert's commitment and dedication to the working men and women in the Pipeline Industry. To date, it has helped hundreds of students enrolled in an institution of higher learning.


$3,000 General Scholarship Program


Each year, Local Union 798 awards ten $3,000 scholarship prizes. Members of Pipeliners Local Union 798 are eligible, as well as their spouses, sons, daughters and grandchildren who are enrolled in at least their first semester of college.


Harry H. Faucett, Jr. Memorial Scholarship


One $7,500 scholarship, honoring Harry H. Faucett Jr., will be awarded to the highest-ranking applicant of the George M. Lambert Scholarship Program, provided the applicant has maintained an overall 3.2 GPA in college level classes while seeking a Bachelor's or Graduate degree.
