AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees) was founded during the Great Depression on a simple idea - that a professional civil service is essential to a strong democracy. This idea has sustained AFSCME through nearly nine decades, as it has grown from a fledgling organization of a few thousand people to one of the most potent forces in the labor movement. Currently, AFSCME also offers scholarships for students, including their members.
This scholarship is open to students meeting the below eligibility criteria.
