ALBANY – United University Professions (UUP), the union that represents academic and professional faculty on state-operated State University of New York campuses, has awarded its annual scholarships to four SUNY students. Funding for the $3,000 scholarships comes from donations from active and retired members.
The union awarded UUP College Scholarships to two full-time undergraduate students and two outstanding graduate students enrolled at SUNY state-operated campuses.

“We are proud to honor, teach and reward these extraordinary SUNY students,” UUP President Frederick E.

It is our pleasure to recognize their accomplishments with these scholarships.”
Undergraduate applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.75. Graduate student applicants must have a grade point average of at least 3.95. Students must also demonstrate personal and academic achievement, as well as a strong record of community service and a dedication to labor unions.
