As educators, you are aware of students who, for various reasons, are at risk of not pursuing education beyond high school. Often, these students would not consider applying for scholarships on their own.

Thanks to her counselor's nomination, Mabel became the first person in her family to attend university. She is thriving and credits the UEA CARF scholarship for alleviating the pressure and worry, allowing her to focus on her studies and make her family proud.

David never believed he would be able to attend college, but thanks to a teacher who knew his story and believed in him, he is now on his way to fulfilling his dream of becoming a veterinarian.

Your nomination could be crucial for our most vulnerable students, like Mabel and David. This opportunity is exclusive to UEA members.

Scholarships for graduating seniors in 2024 range from $500 to $10,000 and can be applied to trade school, tech certification, community college, university, or other post-secondary education.

Nominations and student applications must be submitted by April 19, 2024.
