UUP offers scholarships for SUNY students

United University Professions (UUP), the nation’s largest higher education union, is inviting SUNY undergraduates to apply for $2,000 annual scholarships.

The UUP Scholarship Trust Fund awards are given annually to up to four outstanding SUNY undergraduates who display dedication to the goals and ideals of the labor union movement. To qualify, students must be full-time undergraduates enrolled at a SUNY state-operated campus. They must also demonstrate personal as well as academic achievement with a minimum grade point average of 3.75, and have a strong record of community service. The scholarships are awarded on a one-time basis, but there is no limit on how many times a student may apply. The application deadline is March 2, 2009.

Scholarships applications can be found at UUP chapter offices located at each of SUNY’s 29 state-operated campuses, or at campus financial aid offices. Applications may also be obtained by calling UUP’s administrative office in Albany toll-free at (800) 342-4206, or by visiting UUP’s Web site at

UUP is the nation's largest higher education union, with more than 37,000 academic and professional faculty and retirees. UUP members work at 29 New York state-operated campuses, including SUNY’s public teaching hospitals and health science centers in Brooklyn, Long Island and Syracuse. It is an affiliate of NYSUT, the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association, and the AFL-CIO.
