The UUP Benefit Trust Fund Scholarship Program will be available for the Fall 2018 semester through the Spring 2022 semester for undergraduate students.

The Scholarship Program is available for dependents of both NYSHIP-eligible and non-NYSHIP-eligible UUP-represented employees.

For Spring 2019, the scholarship award is $500 per semester to be used for fees, books, supplies or room and board (this award cannot be used for tuition). A maximum of one scholarship per dependent child will be awarded each semester even if both parents are UUP represented employees and a total maximum of eight scholarships can be awarded per dependent child. The scholarship checks will be issued in the UUP represented employee’s name. The scholarship application must be postmarked by 60 days after the end of the semester for which the dependent is applying.

The scholarship form outlines the specific criteria that needs to be met to qualify for the scholarship. There are two different forms – one for NYSHIP-eligible employees and one for non-NYSHIP-eligible employees. Non-NYSHIP-eligible employees will need to provide documentation verifying that they are the parent of the student.

A maximum of one scholarship per dependent child will be awarded each semester, even if both parents are UUP-represented employees. Each dependent child is eligible for a maximum of eight scholarships. The scholarship checks will be issued in the UUP-represented employee’s name.

If you have any questions regarding the scholarship program, please call the UUP Benefit Trust Fund at 800-887-3863.
