2021 NH AFL-CIO Linda Horan Scholarship Program
This year, in honor of Sister Linda Horan, the NH AFL-CIO will again award scholarship assistance. Members in good standing of an affiliated local union, their spouses, children, grandchildren, stepchildren, or legal wards are encouraged to apply. A minimum of three scholarships will be awarded; one for $1,500, one for $1,000 and one for $750. Additional prizes may be awarded contingent on funding available.
Scholarship applicants must submit a 750-1,000 word (3 to 4 pages double-spaced) essay on the following topic:
The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act addresses many of the major shortcomings with our current law. Passing the PRO Act would help restore workers’ ability to organize with their co-workers and negotiate for better pay, benefits, and fairness on the job. How would passing the PRO Act also promote greater racial & gender economic justice and bring greater fairness to the workplace?
Those eligible are members in good standing, or the spouses, children, grandchildren, stepchildren, or legal wards of a member in good standing, of unions affiliated with the NH AFL-CIO. The union member must live or work in New Hampshire.
A completed application form must be verified by Local 4 officials and must accompany the essay. Forms are available from Local 4 or the NH AFL-CIO, 161 Londonderry Turnpike, Hooksett, NH 03106 (or call 603-623-7302).
The scholarship award(s) will be announced on or before August 31, 2021.
Winners must provide proof of undergraduate enrollment in a college, community college, university, or recognized trade school for the fall semester, 2021. Essays and application forms must be received by the NH AFL-CIO Scholarship Committee, no later than 4:00 p.m., TUESDAY, August 24, 2021 at: NH AFL-CIO, 161 Londonderry Turnpike, Hooksett, NH 03106.
