Announcing the United Public Employees Scholarship

 

The UPE Board of Directors is proud to announce the 1st Annual United Public Employees Scholarship competition.  Open to UPE members’ families, the program offers four $1500 scholarships to help with college expenses. 

The scholarships are a first of their kind for UPE and are a part of the Union’s renewed efforts to give back to our members.  As a wholly independent union, UPE is now able to reinvest all member dues back into its members whether in the form of representation, negotiations, or member appreciation programs such as the Scholarship.

 Rick Reeve (005) a member of the Board of Directors said he was “proud UPE is offering these scholarships to deserving students.” He continued, “We recognize the personal and financial challenges our members and their families go through every day. I am excited that these scholarships are being made available in our first year as a member-run independent union. You have entrusted us to fight for your rights and we are investing in you or your family members, who one day, will continue the fight for employee rights and wages."

 

Applications must be postmarked by June 10, 2017 and winners will be notified in July.  As a part of the application, those applying must complete a 500 word essay; include three letters of reference; and transcripts. 

The competition for 2017 is now closed.  Winners will be announced in July 2017.
