Five Children of Teamsters Win Money for Education
Five children of Teamster members recently won Union Plus Scholarship awards. Arthur Sawyer won a $750 scholarship; Shaelyn R. Marx, Austin B. Maxwell, Ashley L. McMahan and Aidan P. Morrison each won $500 scholarships.
Since 1991, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $4.3 million to students of working families who want to begin or continue their post-secondary education.
Over 2,900 families have benefited from our commitment to higher education. The Union Plus Scholarship Program is offered through the Union Plus Education Foundation, supported in part by contributions from the provider of the Union Plus Credit Card. (You do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Card holder to apply for this scholarship.)
The students selected for university, college, trade or technical school scholarships represent a wide sampling of backgrounds, union affiliations, goals and accomplishments. The selection process is very competitive—Union Plus receives more than 5,000 applications each year.
