Proof of enrollment must be submitted to AFSCME Council 93’s Business Office by July 1st of each school year.

  • Applicants must submit a typewritten, double-spaced essay based on the prompt: “Unions have been important to my family because…” The essay must be 500 to 750 words. The Scholarship Committee suggests that students contact their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors or friends to learn what labor union membership and participation may have meant to them. Union members are encouraged to discuss the essay with their children, grandchildren and others, in order to share their own experiences as possible topics for the essay.
  • The Scholarship Committee will determine the award based upon the essay and completed application form. Upon receipt of each scholarship application, the applicant’s name and local number will be separately indexed. Once completed, the Scholarship Committee will then obscure this information to assure complete impartiality. The decision of the Committee is final.
