Scholarships, Loans, and Awards Offered by Independent and AFL-CIO Affiliated Labor Unions. Student Aid Bulletin, Vol. 27, No. 2, 1975-76.
Labor unions and their affiliated locals pledge vast amounts of money annually to aid union members and children of members to acquire education beyond high school. Awards range from $100 stipends to scholarships worth $8,000 for the four college years. The listing of union-sponsored scholarships is in two major divisions: the programs of (1) national and international unions awarded on a national basis; and (2) state listings of council, district, and local union awards. The programs of national and international unions are generally for sons and daughters of union members, but on a national basis. The state listings are generally open to sons and daughters of members of union locals; some are open to any high school student in the county or state; and others are unrestricted, but specify, for example, that one will enter study to become a nurse, teacher, or journalist. Unless otherwise noted, all copy in this edition has been approved by the sponsoring organizations since January 1, 1975. (Author)
