AFT Connecticut Scholarships

The AFT Connecticut Scholarship Program provides funding to eligible members and their dependents selected by the scholarship committee based on applications submitted by those seeking the benefit. The executive committee votes on the recommendations made by the scholarship committee and the awards for 2022 will be announced later in the year.

The Scholarship Account is funded by AFT Connecticut, but is supported by donations from local unions when they name members to the AFT Connecticut Honor Roll.

Applications for 2022 benefits are due by Sun., 05/01/2022.

Awards are presented to the candidates selected by the scholarship committee. The amount of the awards is determined each year by the committee based on academic promise, financial need, and other criteria the committee chooses.

Persons eligible to apply for a scholarship are members, members’ spouses or domestic partners, or children of members. Grandchildren of members are also eligible if they are legal dependents and/or the grandparents are financially responsible for the child.
