SEIU Local 517M is proud to offer our very own scholarship program! With the discontinuation of the SEIU International scholarship program, the SEIU Local 517M Executive Board established our own scholarship program to help dues-paying members in good standing and their children with college expenses.
The funding for the scholarship comes from our Annual Scholarship Golf Outing and other fundraising activities by our local units which include raffles and fundraising events. We hope you are able to participate in any or all of these events throughout the year. Please check our SEIU Local 517M website for our calendar of events.
Eight $500 non-renewable scholarships will be awarded this year to students based on successful completion of the application process and meeting certain criteria. Awards will be made via a lottery system from all eligible submissions.
Scholarships are awarded without regard to gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or political affiliation of the applicant. Scholarships are limited to one per household for each academic year.
Applications must be received by May 14, 2018. The winners will be notified July 2, 2018.
