SAVE THOUSANDS ON COLLEGE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

Deadlines Approaching for 
OAPSE Scholarship Application

and Free College Program 

$2,500 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OAPSE CHILDREN
Your OAPSE membership gets you special deals on lots of travel, shopping, insurance and other items. But one of the best opportunities provided by the union is access to scholarships for college for children of OAPSE members and the ability to attend college for free or at greatly reduced rates.

Deadlines are approaching for the OAPSE/AFSCME Memorial Scholarship program. The OAPSE/AFSCME Memorial Scholarship Program is available to children whose parent or legal guardian is a member in good standing of the Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE/AFSCME Local 4/AFL-CIO). Under the program, scholarships of $2,500.00 each are awarded to at least one winner from each of the ten (10) OAPSE Districts selected from the applicants who meet the eligibility requirements.

Any graduating high school senior who is a daughter or son of an active OAPSE/AFSCME member or whose legal guardian is an active OAPSE/AFSCME member and who intends to enroll in a full-time degree program in any two (2) or four (4) year accredited university, college, business or technical school is eligible to apply for a scholarship. The scholarships may be used for any field of study.

To be eligible, all information or supportive documentation requested in the application must be received by the committee by March 1 each year.

FREE AND REDUCED-COST COLLEGE 

Also, more than 1,000 OAPSE members have taken advantage of the union’s free-college benefit. The benefit allows you and your family members to earn an associate degree online from a public, accredited community college – with no out-of-pocket costs to you. You can also access discounted college programs and low-cost four-year degrees. This can save you thousands of dollars. And the process is simple.
