Union Plus Scholarship Program

For over 20 years the Union Plus Scholarship program has been making annual college scholarship awards to union family members. In total we’ve awarded more than $3.7 million in educational funding to more than 2,500 union members, spouses and dependent children.

Student debt is a larger issue than ever before, especially for union families.

Union Plus Scholarship awards are granted to students attending a two-year college, four-year college, graduate school or a recognized technical or trade school.

Union families looking for help financing their education should check out the Union Plus Scholarship’s 2016 application - available through January 31.



Union Plus is committed to helping union members and their families fund their college education. In addition to scholarships, Union Plus also offers the following benefits to help union families afford higher education:
