A&R Scholarships

Every year, A&R awards scholarships to qualifying children of A&R/AFT Local 4200 members or children of former A&R members who are now members of the A&R Retiree Chapter. 

Nine scholarships in the amount of $1,500 each will go to 2024 high school graduates or seniors who have been accepted to and will be entering a post-secondary educational institution.  These are one-time only awards. 

Four awards in the amount of $1,500 each will go to post secondary students who are continuing their education.  The continuing student awards are also one-time only, but the recipient may previously have received an entering student A&R scholarship.

One of the applicants will receive a $2,500 Harry Zilber Scholarship Award presented in recognition of community service activities.  The name of the Zilber Award winner is displayed at the A&R Headquarters on a commemorative plaque.

One of the applicants will receive a $2,500 Mike Winkler Scholarship in honor of our former A&R President & Vice President who served as an A&R officer from 1999-2013

If you have a qualifying child who is continuing their education and wishes to apply for a scholarship, please complete the application and return it to the A&R Office by the March 28, 2024  deadline.
