Union Plus Scholarship

Since 1991, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $4.8 million to students of union families. Over 3,200 union families have benefited from our commitment to higher education.

Award amounts: $500 to $4,000. These one-time cash awards are available for the Fall of 2021. Students may re-apply each year.

Eligibility criteria: Current and retired members of unions participating in any Union Plus program, their spouses and their dependent children (as defined by IRS regulations) are eligible.

The applicant must be accepted into a U.S. accredited college, university, community college, technical or trade school at the time the award is issued.  Awards must be used for the 2021-2022 school year. Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply.

Award date: May 31, 2021. During the first week of June 2021 award recipients will be notified by postal mail, and all applicants will be sent an email notification.
