Every year, the UFCW Scholarship Program offers scholarships to UFCW members or their immediate family members who want to further their education and demonstrate a commitment to their communities and to 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.
The Charity Foundation is also introducing a Loan Assistance Program that encourages young people to enter and continue to work full-time in the labor movement.* Under this program, college students and college graduates may qualify for loan assistance payments for education loans while employed within the labor movement.
More information about the scholarship, including promotional materials and the link to apply online is available here.
*UFCW-employed officers and staff, and their immediate families are not eligible for these programs.
