There is good news if you or your family has not yet submitted applications for the scholarships available each year exclusively to members of AFT-affiliated unions. Deadlines for these valuable benefits are next week, so there is still time to apply.
AFT Connecticut awards two scholarships annually; one for union members’ own educational pursuits and the other for their spouses, domestic partners or children.

As affiliates of the national AFT, members are also eligible for one of 10 grants of $1,000 each to assist with their continuing education. Plus their dependents may apply for an $8,000 scholarship awarded each year to four high-achieving high school seniors.
