There are many union-based scholarships available to union members and their dependents through labor councils and federations. They are announced early in each calendar year for the following fall term. There are scholarships for any accredited post-secondary institution and there are opportunities for both graduating high school seniors and students who are already enrolled.
UFCW International Union also offers scholarships of up to $8,000 for members and dependents. For more information and eligibility requirements, please visit www.ufcw.org/scholarship.
To receive applications as they are released, call the union hall at 800-LOCAL23 (800-562-2523), extension 103, and ask to be added to the mailing list.
