Each year, the AFT Connecticut Scholarship Program awards two types of Scholarships providing funding to eligible members and their dependents. The account is funded by the state federation, but is supported by donations from local unions when they name members to the AFT Connecticut Honor Roll.
Persons eligible to apply for a scholarship are members, members’ spouses or domestic partners, or children of members. Grandchildren of members are also eligible if they are legal dependents and/or the grandparents are financially responsible for the child. The AFT Connecticut member upon whom the applicant bases their eligibility must be a member of an AFT Connecticut Local in good standing.
