Scholarships Available from the Texas AFL-CIO Scholarship Fund

December 4, 2019

All members or children of members, or children whose legal guardians are members of our local or any local union affiliated with the Texas AFL-CIO and the local Central Labor Council are eligible for a scholarship from the Texas AFL-CIO. Applicants must be high school seniors who are planning to attend a university, college, or technical institute in the summer or fall term.The program helps children of union members pay for college, but it goes beyond that. Through an interview and testing process, all applicants get more exposure to how unions work and to labor history.

One of last year’s scholarship winners was Maria Ferraro, the daughter of Local 72-147 member, Joe Ferraro. She is now attending SMU, working on a BFA in Dance with a Minor in Arts Management.
