Education can change the world!

The UFCW is about workers coming together to build better lives for themselves. It is about creating opportunity. That is why each year the UFCW Charity Foundation awards several scholarships of up to $8,000 each to UFCW members or their unmarried dependents under the age of 20.

The UFCW International Union has provided scholarships for more than 46 years, and the UFCW Charity Foundation continues in that effort. These programs recognize bright, young UFCW members and their dependents for their scholarly pursuits, and they have evolved over the years.

For the 2019 awards, online applications will continue to be accepted for the UFCW Charity Foundation Scholarship from any student who has graduated from high school, will be graduating in the spring of 2019, or has received their GED.

This year, the application will be available from February 11 through May 12, 2019, and we are proud that the Charity Foundation will award at least eight scholarships worth up to $8,000 each over a four year period.
