The Western Union Foundation Family Scholarship Program is helping immigrant/migrant fathers and sons, mothers and daughters and brothers and sisters move up the economic ladder through education and training. Scholarships may be used for college/university tuition, language acquisition classes, technical/skills training, and GED classes, with two family members receiving a scholarship to help achieve the type of education they need in order to create a brighter future for their entire family.

Award / Eligibility Details:

All applicants for scholarships must be age 18 or older. Both applicants are members of the same family. Applicants must have been in the United States for seven years or fewer. Both applicants must have been born outside of the United States. Both applicants must be living in the United States currently. The educational institutions for both of the family members must be in the United States. The application must include educational institutions for both the primary and secondary award recipients (the two family members). Scholarships may be used for tuition for college/university education, language acquisition classes, technical/skill training, and/or GED classes. Scholarships may not be used for advanced degrees (such as Masters, PhD). Scholarships will be made only to accredited higher-education institutions and training/educational providers.
