How does the Union Plus Scholarship Program work?

Evaluation Criteria:

This is a competitive scholarship. Applicants are evaluated according to academic ability, social awareness, financial need and appreciation of labor. A GPA of 3.0 or higher is recommended.

The required essay can account for up to half your total score.

Scholarship applicants are judged by a committee of impartial post-secondary educators.

Application Deadline:

A complete application must be received on or before 12 p.m. EST on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013. Applications received after this deadline will not be considered.

Scholarship Award Amounts:

Amounts range from $500 to $4,000. These one-time cash awards are for study beginning in the fall of 2013. Students may re-apply each year.

Award Date:

The Scholarship Committee will determine recipients of scholarship awards by May 31 each year. During the first two weeks of June, award recipients will be individually notified by mail, and all applicants will be sent an email with notification that the award list is posted at UnionPlus.org/Scholarships. Please note that due to the volume of applications, we cannot provide any information on the status of an application before award announcements are made.
