A better life through your union
The UFCW Charity Foundation Scholarship Program
Every year the UFCW SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM offers scholarships to UFCW members or their immediate family members who want to further their education and demonstrate a commitment to their communities and to UFCW values. Since 1958, the fund has distributed more than $2 million in scholarships.*
Past winners have gone on to make significant contributions to society and to the UFCW – entering a range of fields including public service, medicine, law, business and teaching. Many have returned to the UFCW as staffers, organizers, and community activists who contribute to our mission.
*UFCW-employed officers and staff, and their immediate families are not eligible for this program.
The UFCW Charity Foundation Scholarship will begin receiving applications on February 11th. The deadline for the 2019 scholarship will be May 12, 2019. The “Part B” of the application will be due by May 26, 2019. For information on how to apply, return to this page after February 11. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
