Apply for the Quill Scholarship

The union has been honoring our founder with these scholarships since 1969. Quill Scholarship awards have benefited hundreds of TWU families. Children of our members in transit, railroad and air transportation, utilities, public employment, space installations, and allied industries are among those who began their college educations with the help of  the TWU’s signature scholarship.

This scholarship offered fifteen (15) college-bound dependents of TWU members with a scholarship worth $4800.00.  This scholarship will be paid out, per year in the amount of $1200.00 to winners who continue to be eligible over their four (4) year course. 

Applications are now closed for the 2020 Michael J. Quill Scholarship Fund. Information on the 2021 Scholarship will be available in January 2021.

We are grateful to have four additional scholarship contributors:

  • Union Benefit Planners
  • M3 Technology
  • Pitta LLP
  • Pitta Bishop & Del Giorno LLC

All of the above sponsored scholarships will be paid out in the first year, as a single scholarship.  Please click here for an application and for additional information and rules, including eligibility requirements.

The deadline for 2020 applications is now closed. No applications postmarked after this date are accepted.  No applications are accepted by fax or email – there will be no exceptions. Winners of the scholarships are determined by a public drawing, held in May. Winners are notified by mail 5 – 7 days thereafter.

NOTE: The Quill Scholarship is only available to current high school seniors. If your child is not currently in their senior year of high school, they are not eligible to apply. There are no exceptions.

Please check with your local for additional scholarships that may be available to other students.
