The Michael J. Quill scholarship offers 15 college-bound dependents of TWU members with a scholarship worth $4,800. This scholarship is 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 benefited hundreds of TWU families. Children 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 the TWU’s signature scholarship.
In 2019, we are honored to have four additional scholarship sponsors, which will add another 21 scholarships: Union Benefit Planners, M3 Technology, Pitta LLP and Pitta, and Bishop & Del Giorno LLC. All of the above-sponsored scholarships will be paid out in the first year, as a single scholarship.
