UAW Region 1A Pioneer Scholarship
Rory L. Gamble Regional Director
This Program has been undertaken by the Retired Workers Council because neither the Michigan legislature, nor the Congress have provided the kind of educational opportunities deperately needed by young adults in our complex world. We continue to struggle to remove the economic barriers to full education opportunities while at the same time trying to help a few families provide their children with education beyond high school.
Individuals that are eligible for this scholarship include: Children, Grandchildren or Wards of a member in good standing, working or retired in a local union located in UAW Region 1A. The individual must be graduating in the year that the contest is being held and must be tentatively accepted into an accredited college, community college or career-training institute.
Each Contestant must submit a 500 words or less essay on either:
The Director's Award topic: "What I Think America Should Be" (This essay must show an appreciation of the issues we face in our country and presents the author's views of what needs to be done about them).
Retired Worker's Award: "What the UAW has meant to my Family" (This essay should reflect the student's knowledge of UAW history, what it has won (half the essay) and how these have affected the lives of the contestant's family (must be the other half)
The required applications are attached to this article and need to be submitted to UAW Region 1A completed with all of the required documentation and signatures no later than APRIL 30, 2014.
