Hawaii State AFL-CIO 2016 Scholarships


The Hawaii State AFL-CIO has established scholarships that will be awarded to students who are currently attending high school in the state of Hawaii and plan to pursue post-high school study on a full-time basis at a university, college, community college, vocational or trade school.

The following criteria will be used in determining the awarding of the scholarships.

  • 1. An essay of not more than 1000 words as to the importance of labor unions in Hawaii. The essay may be written from a personal point of view or from a historical perspective.
  • 2. Completing a cover letter with relevant information: name, address, phone number, e-mail address and what type of school you plan to attend.

    The scholarship is open to any graduating senior and having a family member in a union is not required. There will be three scholarships awarded in the amount of $1500, $1000 and $500.

    All submissions must be received or postmarked by Friday, April 22, 2016. Applications can be sent by e-mail to: aflcioscholarship@gmail.com or by mail to: 345 Queen St., Suite 500, Honolulu, HI 96813. Please direct all questions to Jason Bradshaw at 597-1441.
