Members will be afforded the opportunity to network with summer school instructors who are union officers, and staff and labor educators from universities and other unions.  This  conference will help the selected leaders to better assist their fellow PEF union members.

To apply for the scholarship, an applicant should submit a short essay of 500 words or less, describing how this program will enhance her skills and knowledge and benefit her local/agency PEF team.

The Women’s Committee will provide two scholarships that include: conference fee, accommodations, meals, all workshops and activities, internet access and travel to and from CUNY Queens College.  Applicants will be required to charge their personal accruals to attend.

Deadline for submissions of the essay is COB May 16,2014. No exceptions will be made.
