Sax WinnerThe Carl J. Saxsenmeier Scholarship Fund

In 2020, the California State Association of Letter Carriers will award ten Saxsenmeier Scholarships of $1,600.00 each. Children and grandchildren of both active and retired California Letter Carriers are eligible. The winners are selected by a panel of professors from the California State University system.

The State Association is made up of seventy branches. Branch and individual donations are the source of funds to this scholarship. Without these generous contributions this valuable resource would not be available to our students. We realize a few branches have their own scholarship funds. The vast majority do not. By donating to the Saxsenmeier Scholarship Fund, your branch or individual donation will help students achieve their educational goals. As you are aware, college is extremely expensive. Many Saxsenmeier scholars have been the first in their families to attend college.

The current selection period is approaching. Even a small contribution can make a difference, especially if multiplied by the generosity of all Letter Carriers in our State Association.

In Unionism,

Harold Kelso

President, CSALC
