UA Scholarship Fund

Deadline: 6/06/2023, 11:59 PM (EST Time Zone)

We are pleased to announce that the United Association Scholarship Trust Fund is gearing up for the 2023-2024 academic year scholarship awards.  Up to 112 scholarships totaling as much as $222,000 will be awarded this year, including 106 for students pursuing undergraduate studies and up to six for students pursuing graduate studies.  Scholarships range from $1,500 to $5,000 each.  Generally, dependents of UA members who are pursuing a post-high school education at an accredited college or university may apply for a scholarship (for more information, see eligibility requirements and award criteria in the detailed instructions found with the application).  The deadline for submitting applications is June 6, 2023.


Applications may be submitted electronically through  The electronic application is now live and potential applicants can check that website and click on the “Login” icon at the top right corner for additional instructions to access and submit applications.  Note that upon logging in, users should be sure to click on the scholarship application titled 2023 United Association Scholarship.


Electronic submissions through the online application are encouraged.  However, paper applications may also be submitted by mail to Patrick H. Kellett, UA Scholarship Trust Fund Office, Three Park Place, Annapolis, MD 21401. Paper applications are available free of charge via request by contacting the office of the UA General Secretary-Treasurer at 410-269-2000 or via download at (UA member login required).


Awards will primarily be based on academic achievement and potential, personal achievement, and community involvement.  Financial need may also be considered.  Scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin.  Applications will be judged by an independent and impartial Selection Committee, comprised of distinguished members of the community.  The Selection Committee may request information concerning the financial circumstances of applicants and use this information in the award of scholarships.  Also, note that because UA scholarships do not automatically renew each year, receiving an award in one year does not guarantee you an award in future years.


In addition, six scholarships will be given to “Second Chance” awardees.  Those selected will be students whose academic achievement is not the best in their region, but who demonstrate that they want another chance at an education to advance their potential for higher-paying employment. We would like to thank everyone for supporting the Fund and look forward to awarding our next round of scholarships to our deserving UA students.
