TWU is now accepting applications for the Michael J. Quill Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will offer 15 college-bound dependents of TWU members with a scholarship worth $4,800. This scholarship will be paid out per year in the amount of $1,200 to winners who continue to be eligible over their four-year course of study.
The union has been honoring our founder with these scholarships since 1969. Quill Scholarship awards have benefitted hundreds of TWU families. Sons and daughters 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 TWU’s signature scholarship.
We have three additional sponsors: Union Benefit Planners has again agreed to sponsor an additional eight scholarships worth $2,500 each. M3 Technology will sponsor five scholarships worth $2,000 each and Vincent Pitta from Pitta & Giblin LLP, in memory of J. Brian Dugan, will sponsor two scholarships worth $2,500 each. All of the above sponsored scholarships will be paid out in the first year, as a single scholarship. The application and additional information, including eligibility requirements, are here.
