The 2020 application for the Union Plus Scholarship is now available for UFCW members and their family members. Union Plus Scholarships are awarded to students attending a two-year or four-year college, graduate school, or a recognized technical or trade school and are offered through the Union Plus Education Foundation. Awards are based on outstanding academic achievement, personal character, financial need, and commitment to the values of organized labor.

Additionally, applicants who are in the foster care system or who have a connection to the foster care system through employment, volunteer work or career goals, can apply for “Isaiah’s Award,” which was created to honor the life of Isaiah C., a beloved child who was fostered and adopted by a current, long-time employee of Union Plus.

The deadline for 2020 Union Plus Scholarship Program applications is January 31, 2020.
