UA Scholarship Fund Information

We are pleased to announce that the United Association Scholarship Trust Fund is gearing up for the 2017-2018 academic year scholarship awards. The fund benefits UA members and their dependents (please see criteria in the detailed instructions found with the application). Up to 112 scholarships totaling as much as $200,000 will be awarded this year. Scholarships range from $1,250 to $5,000 each. The deadline for submitting applications is June 15, 2017.

Each application includes detailed instructions on everything a student needs to do in order to apply. Completed applications, including all required documentation, should be sent to:

Patrick H. Kellett
General Secretary-Treasurer
UA Scholarship Trust Fund Office
Three Park Place
Annapolis, MD 21401

Scholarship recipients from the Fall 2016 – Spring 2017 academic year may, at their option, apply by completing only the “Previous (2016-2017 Academic Year) Award Recipient” application (found on the UA web site at www.ua.org) and providing their most recent official grade transcript along with a certification from the educational institution that the applicant remains in good academic standing with no disciplinary actions brought against them. Unofficial grade transcripts (including self-generated computer grade printouts or class schedules) will not be accepted as a substitute for the official grade transcript from the registrar’s office of the educational institution. However, UA scholarships do not automatically renew each year, and receiving an award in one year does not guarantee you awards in future years. Because of this, prior year recipients may find it in their interest to complete the full length application in subsequent years to fully display their achievements.

If you were not awarded a 2016-2017* scholarship, you must apply by submitting a fully completed 2017-2018 application with all enclosures and attachments as instructed above. *Note, you must complete the full length application if you did not receive an award in the immediately preceding academic year (2016-2017), even if you received an award in an earlier year.

Awards will primarily be based on academic achievement and potential, personal achievement, and community involvement. Scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Applications will be judged by an independent and impartial Selection Committee, comprised of distinguished members of the community. Financial need may also be considered in making awards. The Selection Committee may request information concerning the financial circumstances of applicants and use this information in the award of scholarships. Finally, because UA scholarships do not automatically renew each year, receiving an award in one year does not guarantee you awards in future years.

In addition, six scholarships will be given to six “Second Chance” applicants. Those selected will be students whose academic achievement is not the best in their region, but rather students who demonstrate that they want another chance at an education that will help them get a good paying job.

We would like to thank everyone for the support to the Fund, and look forward to awarding our next round of scholarships to our deserving UA students.

Deadline to apply: June 15, 2017
