Applications for 2017/2018 Education Scholarship Available

With the arrival of Spring, the fundraising and application process for the 2017-2018 AFT Washington/Schwerin Campbell Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt Scholarships is under way! At least three $1,000 education scholarships are available this year to AFT Washington locals’ members in good standing and their family members or dependents.

Our scholarships program began in 2005 when the principals of the Seattle-based labor law firm approached AFT Washington, asking us to partner with them to improve access to higher education and the awareness of labor rights among our members and their families. This is the eleventh year of the cooperative program, with 30 students receiving scholarships thus far.

Qualified applicants must plan on attending an institution of higher education during the 2017-2018 academic year to earn a degree or credential at any level from associate to graduate. The scholarship application deadline is Monday, May 22, 2017. Eligibility requirements, application guidelines, and the scholarship application form can be downloaded from our website at
