Dear AMEA member,

The deadline to apply for the AMEA Scholarship is Thursday, June 30! Fight the rising cost of college and apply today!

Eligibility is contingent on enrollment or acceptance with intent to enroll in an accredited college or trade/vocational/technical school for the Fall 2022 semester. For the full list of eligibility requirements, and to apply for the AMEA scholarships, click here. Scholarship recipients will be announced at AMEA Board of Directors July meeting.

AMEA is offering two $1,000 scholarships this year. One is for an AMEA member and one for the child or stepchild of an AMEA member (or whose legal guardian or financially responsible grandparent is an AMEA member). If only one recipient is selected, both $1,000 scholarships will be given to the selected individual.

A selection committee will review each student’s high school transcripts, current GPA and personal recommendations. Each applicant must also submit a 500-word essay that describes how they would use their college education to improve the lives of working families. The essay will be the greatest determining factor in selecting scholarship winners.

The AMEA Board of Directors is committed to supporting the next generation of strong union leaders and to keeping the American Dream of higher education alive. We hope you will encourage those eligible to apply
