AFT-Wisconsin has a long tradition of offering educational scholarships to support dependents of members in good standing who wish to pursue a college education.  Currently, AFT-Wisconsin offers one $1,000 university scholarship and one $500 technical college scholarship.  Continuing from last year, an additional $500 technical college scholarship is being offered in memory of Phil Neuenfeldt, past president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO who passed away in November 2018.  

Eligibility for Scholarships:

Applicant's parent, grandparent or guardian must be a current AFT-Wisconsin member or a retiree in good standing of AFT-Wisconsin for more than one year. The individual must be accepted into an accredited college, university or technical college at the time the award is issued. Preference for the 2021-2022 scholarships will be given to applicants with an expected high school graduation date of June 2022. However, if scholarships are still available after these have been evaluated or if no current graduates apply, past graduates will be considered. Graduate students are not eligible.

Evaluation criteria:

Applicants for scholarships are evaluated according to graduation date, academic rank, extracurricular and school activities, leadership skills, family union activity, essay and recommendations.

Funding:

The Memorial Scholarships are funded by both contributions from AFT-Wisconsin and voluntary contributions.
