We are accepting applications for the Maria Landa-Rios Memorial Scholarship.  This scholarship is in honor of Ms. Landa-Rios, who was president of Local 537 before her passing in 2001.  Ms. Landa-Rios’ passion was education and the importance of attending college.  One (1) scholarship, in the amount of twelve-hundred dollars ($1,200.00) will be awarded to a member of OPEIU Local 537, their spouse, or child, who is attending, or is registered to attend, an accredited college or university.  Please click here for the application.  The deadline is May 1, 2017, and the award recipient will be announced at the Membership Meeting on May 17, 2017.  

The Howard Coughlin Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year to 20 members or their children for undergraduate university or college education.

John Kelly Labor Studies Scholarship provides assistance to members or associate members who wish to pursue undergraduate or graduate degrees in labor studies, industrial relations, social science, or a related field.  Ten scholarships (one per region) are awarded annually.

Two past OPEIU Secretary-Treasurers,
Romeo Corbeil and Gilles Beauregard, were committed to the youth of America and their understanding of labor movement, democratic voice in the decisions of everyday life, and having fun in nature.  A summer camp in their name was established for the children of OPEIU members.

Romeo Coirbeil/Gilles Beauregard Summer Camp awards children of OPEIU members a chance to go to Summer Camp.
