UA Scholarship Fund Information

 

We are pleased to announce that the United Association Scholarship Trust Fund is gearing up for the 2021/2022 academic year scholarship awards. Generally, dependents of UA members who are pursuing a post-high school education at an accredited college or university may apply for a scholarship (please see eligibility requirements and award criteria in the detailed instructions found with the application). The deadline for submitting applications is June 9, 2021.

Applications are exclusively accepted electronically through uascholarshipfund.communityforce.com. Potential applicants should check that website beginning February 16 for additional instructions to access and submit applications for the 2021/2022 academic year.

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.

The three most important considerations in determining who receives a UA Scholarship are the applicant’s academic standing, personal achievements, and community participation. However, financial consideration may also be taken into account in situations of a “tie-breaker.” In addition, six scholarships will be given to applicants who demonstrate they want another chance at an education to advance their potential for higher-paying employment.

 

Some information requested in the application process and other application requirements include:

  • The applicant must be planning or already attending post-high school education at an institution of higher learning for the Fall 2021 semester.
  • Applicant must have completed or be about to complete high school or be a college student.
  • Applicant must have been accepted for admission or be enrolled in an accredited college or university. Enrollment certification will be required prior to scholarship funds being disbursed to the successful applicant.
  • A personal statement of 500 words or less is required. e applicant has a choice of the topics listed in the application.
  • Two letters of recommendation or reference letters are required to be submitted directly by the reference. One of these letters must be from a teacher or individual who is in a position to evaluate the applicant’s academic performance.
  • The most recent official transcript of the student must be submitted.

 

More details on the UA Scholarship can be found at the application website, uascholarshipfund.communityforce.com.

The United Association Scholarship Trust Fund continues to draw substantial interest, with more than 450 applications submitted for the 2020/2021 academic year. We would like to thank everyone for their support to the fund and look forward to awarding our next round of scholarships to our deserving UA students.
