UFCW 951 Education Scholarship

The UFCW 951 Foundation Education Program will award twenty $500 scholarships in 2018 to financially  assist members with education related expenses.
In addition to the fifteen $2,000 College Scholarships awarded in June, the Foundation will now also award five Education Scholarships in the amount of $500 each in January, April, July and October. The $500 quarterly scholarships will be awarded directly to the recipients as reimbursements for qualifying educational expenses paid in 2018.

Fees incurred to attend college, a trade school, take language courses or get your GED all qualify. Eligible expenses include course fees, room and board, parking, testing fees, books and other education related expenses. Scholarship recipients will not be disqualified/found ineligible due to a medical, educational or military leave of absence.
