Each year, Union Plus awards scholarships to students from union families across the country. Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit, social awareness, financial need and appreciation of labor. Scholarships are awarded in amounts of $500 to $4,000, and students may reapply each year.
Last year, UAW members and their children were awarded thousands of dollars to help them continue their education through the Union Plus Scholarship program.
Since starting the program in 1991, Union Plus has awarded $4.2 million in educational funding to more than 2,800 union members, spouses and dependent children. Union Plus Scholarship awards are granted to students attending a two-year college, four-year college, graduate school, or recognized technical or trade school.
The deadline to apply is January 31st.
