The union has been honoring our founder with these scholarships since 1969. Quill Scholarship awards have benefited hundreds of TWU families. Sons and daughters 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 TWU’s signature scholarship.
 
We have three additional sponsors: Union Benefit Planners has again agreed to sponsor an additional eight scholarships worth $2,500 each. M3 Technology will sponsor five scholarships worth $2,000 each and Vincent Pitta, from Pitta LLP, in memory of J. Brian Dugan, will sponsor two scholarships worth $2,500 each. All of the above sponsored scholarships will be paid out in the first year, as a single scholarship. The application and additional information, including eligibility requirements, are below.
 
The deadline for all applications is April 21, 2017; no applications postmarked after this date will be accepted—there will be no exceptions. There will be no applications accepted by fax or email. Winners of the scholarships will be determined by a public drawing to be held in May. Winners will be notified by mail 5–7 days thereafter.
