UUP offers scholarships for SUNY students


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

The UUP College Scholarship Fund awards are given annually to as many as four outstanding SUNY undergraduates who exhibit 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.

Scholarships applications are available 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 www.uupinfo.org/scholarships/scholarship.doc.

UUP is the nation's largest higher education union, with more than 42,000 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.
