For more than 45 years, the Family Education Center has been a place where UAW members and their families come together for an experience that combines education with recreation.

It’s a place to learn about our union, unlock ideas, and build new friendships with other UAW families. This one-week summer experience, held from July 21-26 at the Education Center, will leave you and your family filled with a spirit guaranteed to strengthen your understanding and appreciation of our union.

Since 1970, thousands of UAW members and their families have participated in the Walter and May Reuther Family Education Center Scholarship Program (Family Scholarship or Family Scholarship Program) – changing their lives and those of their loved ones forever.

Located in scenic Onaway, Michigan, on Black Lake, the Family Education Center was envisioned by legendary UAW President Walter Reuther to be a place where UAW members and their families could come together to learn and have fun.

Through educational and recreational activities, the Family Scholarship Program allows adults and children to learn and think about how our union empowers us to change our workplaces and communities for ourselves and future generations.

These lessons are learned through daily adult and children’s programs and family activities.

Applications must be completed and submitted by June 27, 2024.
