UFCW Local 1059 is committed to helping you inside the workplace and after your shift is over. Through the Family Enrichment and Childcare Scholarships, the UFCW Local 1059 Executive Board has established funding to help our hard-working union families. The following scholarships will begin starting in 2017.
Family Enrichment Scholarships are $100 reimbursements for enrolling a member or member’s child in activities such as sports, scouting or other activities. We want to help our union families nurture teamwork, learn new skills and be active in their communities. Eligible dependents enrolled in such activities must be under the age of 19.
Childcare Scholarships are $750 reimbursements for licensed childcare. The demands of work often require members to find outside childcare for their children. These scholarships help defray the cost of care offered by legally certified providers.
Members who would like an opportunity to win a Childcare or Family Enrichment scholarship need only submit one application for each scholarship per calendar year. Scholarship winners are chosen through a random drawing during the February, September and November Quarterly Membership Meetings. All applications received before 2017 will be entered into the drawings starting in February.
Applications will remain in each drawing for a calendar year as long as the applying member remains active. Members may only win once for each scholarship per calendar year. Check out the scholarship application for more on the fine print.
