CSEA Dependent Scholarships


Paying for college is expensive, but CSEA can help ease the pain with a $1,000 scholarship. Each year CSEA awards dozens of scholarships to CSEA member dependents (including spouses). Since the early 1960's, CSEA's Scholarship Program has awarded more than a million dollars to union members and their dependents that want to begin or continue their secondary education.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, character, leadership and extra curricular activities within the community. Financial need may also be taken into consideration on some. There are graduating high school senior, community college and college or vocational school scholarships.

CSEA offers a total of 53 scholarships in three different categories:

  • First Year Scholarships (43 awarded)
  • Community College Scholarship (5 awarded)
  • College/Vocational Scholarship (5 awarded)
