This year, in honor of Sister Linda Horan, the NH AFL-CIO will again award scholarship assistance. Members in good standing of an affiliated local union, their spouses, children, grandchildren, stepchildren, or legal wards are encouraged to apply. A minimum of three scholarships will be awarded; one for $1,500, one for $1,000 and one for $750. Additional prizes may be awarded contingent on funding available.

Scholarship applicants must submit a 750-1,000 word (3 to 4 pages double-spaced) essay on the following topic:

What effect has the decline in Union membership had in rising income inequality? What can be done to reverse it?

Essays will be judged on understanding, writing style, and significance to Labor Unions. Applicants are encouraged to draw on the experiences of their families and communities. Two copies of the essay must be submitted – one may be a photocopy. All wording identifying the union member or the name of the member’s union will be redacted, so please avoid use of such identifying information in your essay.

Those eligible are members in good standing, or the spouses, children, grandchildren, stepchildren, or legal wards of a member in good standing, of unions affiliated with the NH AFL-CIO. The union member must live or work in New Hampshire.

A completed application form must be verified by your local union official and must accompany the essay. Forms are available from your local union or the NH AFL-CIO, 161 Londonderry Turnpike, Hooksett, NH 03106 (or call 603-623-7302).

The scholarship award(s) will be announced on or before Friday June 22, 2018. Winners will also be honored at the NH-AFL-CIO’s annual LABOR Day Breakfast. Winners must provide proof of undergraduate enrollment in a college, community college, university, or recognized trade school for the fall semester, 2018.

Essays and application forms must be received by the NH AFL-CIO Scholarship Committee, no later than 4:00 p.m., Friday June 8, 2018 at: NH AFL-CIO, 161 Londonderry Turnpike, Hooksett, NH 03106.
