Every year, the UFCW Scholarship Program offers scholarships to UFCW members (or their immediate family members) who want to further their education and who also demonstrate a commitment to their communities and 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.
