When you join the union, you have access to these AFGE benefits. These benefits are backed by the collective strength of over 10-million members of AFL-CIO unions. By using one or two of the programs, many members save as much as their annual dues.
These Money-Saving Benefits are Available Only to AFGE Members:
"Education is the key to fulfilling our potential as union leaders and stewards of social change."
AFGE National President
John N. Sturdivant (JNS) served as President of the AFGE from 1988 to 1997. He was one of the first graduates from the college degree program at the George Meany Center in January 1980. And he strongly believed in the role of labor education in empowering union activists to become effective leaders and to build strong unions. Through John's vision, AFGE remains the largest federal sector union in the country.
The JNS Scholarship was established by the National Executive Board of the American Federation of Government Employees to honor the memory of former President John N. Sturdivant and his dream of developing effective union leaders and a stronger labor movement.
All members of AFGE in good standing and/or their dependents are eligible. All AFGE staff in good standing who have completed at least 1 year of service are eligible.
Scholarship awards will be determined on a rolling basis; however, applicants are encouraged to apply early -- six weeks prior to the beginning of the applicants' academic term -- for greatest consideration.
