Scholarships from AFT

There are three scholarship programs available each year for AFT-affiliated union members and their families -- and 2015 application windows for these valuable benefits are now open:
1. AFT Connecticut awards two $2,500.00 scholarships annually; one to a member for their own higher education and another for a spouse, domestic partner or child of a member;
2. Our national AFT's Robert G. Porter Scholars Program offers one-time $1,000.00 grants to union members and four-year, $8,000.00 scholarships to their dependents; &
3. Union Plus awards grants to members and their families ranging from $500.00 to $4,000.00 each year.
Make one of your New Year's resolutions to lower the cost of a college education for your family and apply for all three benefits -- but hurry; the first deadline is January 31!
Good luck, and in solidarity,
