Since 1992, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $3.7 million to students of working families who want to begin or continue their post-secondary education. Over 2,500 families have benefited from Union Plus’ commitment to higher education. In 2015, 106 union members and union family members were awarded $150,000 in scholarships. The Union Plus Scholarship Program is offered by the Union Plus Education Foundation.
