Union Plus Scholarship

Since 1991, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $4.8 million to students of union families. Over 2,800 union families have benefited from our commitment to higher education.
This program is offered through the Union Plus Education Foundation, which is sponsored by Union Privilege.
The Union Plus Education Foundation is funded in part by donations from Capital One N.A., the provider of the Union Plus Credit Card (You do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Card holder to apply for this scholarship.)
Isaiah’s Award was created to honor the exceptional life of Isaiah C., a beloved child, fostered and adopted by a current, long-time employee of Union Plus. Isaiah was a smart, talented, spiritual, generous and kind young man. It is our wish that his gentle spirit live on, in part, through this namesake scholarship.
Applicants for Isaiah’s Award must have a special connection to the foster care system, and will be asked in their application to describe their personal, employment, volunteer experiences, or career goals related to the foster care system.
Robert G. Porter Scholarship
A mix of national AFT contributions and voluntary contributions from AFT affiliates, members and friends make the scholars program possible for two purposes: to encourage members in good standing to learn more about labor or further their own career, and to support members’ dependents who wish to pursue a career in labor, education, health care or government service.
This program offers four 4-year, $8,000 post-secondary scholarships to students who are dependents of AFT members, as well as 10 one-time $1,000 grants to AFT members to assist with their continuing education.
Application information and eligibility requirements will be posted as soon as they are available.
