The United Latinos has unveiled The New American Citizenship Fund.

The fund was created to support UFCW members that have applied for U.S. Citizenship. The New American Citizenship Fund is made possible by UFCW local union support to the United Latinos of the UFCW. The scholarship is for UFCW members who have applied for U.S. citizenship and who have demonstrated a strong commitment to building a stronger voice for workers in their Union and in their community through active engagement in advancing social and economic justice.

Selection Process The United Latinos of the UFCW will accept applications throughout the 2014 year and funds will be awarded until the fund is exhausted.

Notification The United Latinos of the UFCW will send the award to the UFCW union president by mail. UFCW sponsoring local unions are asked to provide The United Latinos of the UFCW a photo of the UFCW member grant recipient.

Thirty-three scholarships have already been awarded to members across the country.    

If you are interested in applying, contact your UFCW Local President to inquire about qualifications and requirements.
