Union Plus scholarship deadline is January 31

CLEVELAND, January 14 ó College-bound children of BLET members are advised that the deadline to apply for Union Plus scholarships is just over two weeks away on January 31, 2013.

Since 1992, the Union Plus Scholarship Program has awarded more than $3.4 million to students of working families who want to begin or continue their post-secondary education. Over 2,200 families have benefited from our commitment to higher education. The Union Plus Scholarship Program is offered through the Union Plus Education Foundation.

BLET families have a history of winning Union Plus awards. Last year, Jennifer Anderson was awarded a $500 Union Plus scholarship. She is the daughter of Brother Mark Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer of the BLETís Minnesota State Legislative Board and Legislative Representative of Division 333 (St. Paul, Minn.).

For an application form, eligibility requirements and other information, please visit the Union Plus website.
