2011 Union Plus Scholarships Applications Available, Congratulations to the 2010 Scholarship Winners

Since 1992, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $3 million to students of working families who want to begin or continue their post-secondary education. Over 1,900 families have benefited from our commitment to higher education. The Union Plus Scholarship Program is offered through the Union Plus Education Foundation.

Congratulations to the 2010 scholarship winners. This year, some 121 union members and union family members have been awarded $150,000 in scholarships, ranging from $500 to $4,000.

The students selected for university, college, trade school or technical scholarships represent a wide sampling of backgrounds, union affiliations, goals and accomplishments. The selection process is very competitive since we receive over 5,000 applications each year.
