AFSCME Local 1624 has a long-standing practice of providing financial assistance to children of our union members to pursue higher education. This year Local 1624 will award five $1500 scholarships.
Scholarships may be awarded to graduating high school seniors who are enrolling in a university, college, junior college or trade school in the 2023 fall semester and whose parent or guardian is a current active AFSCME Local 1624 member.
Of the scholarship awards granted, one will be reserved for applicants to an accredited trade school. If there are no trade school applicants, then it will be available for another University or College applicant.
Only one (1) applicant per family will be selected.
The scholarship will be payable to the awardee’s chosen university, college or trade school upon proof of enrollment in the fall semester of the year the award is granted.
The application deadline is May 1, 2023. Applications should be delivered to the AFSCME Local 1624 office, located at 1812 Centre Creek Dr. #Ste. 310, Austin, Texas, 78754. Mailed applications must be postmarked by May 1. Please be sure to include your sealed school transcript with your application.
The AFSCME Local 1624 Scholarship Committee will review all applications and will conduct interviews of all eligible applicants in May 2023. We will call all eligible applicants to schedule your interview time. Interviews begin at approximately 5:00 p.m. and finish at approximately 8 p.m. depending on the number of applicants.
