Auxiliary of the UTU Scholarship Recipient
Information As a new Auxiliary of the United Transportation Union
Scholarship Fund winner, you will receive from the President of the
Scholarship Fund Board a notification letter, an "Accept or Decline" form,
and a Proof of Enrollment
As a scholarship recipient, you need to fill out and return to the President of the Scholarship Fund Board the "Accept or Decline" form. If a reply is not received by June 1 of your decision to accept or decline this award, it will be given to the next qualified alternate winner.
The Proof of Enrollment form should be completed by the college Registrar and returned to the President of the Scholarship Fund Board as soon as possible.
The registrar's signature will certify that you are enrolled as a full time student. This will also provide the address where your scholarship check will be sent.
After the Scholarship Fund Board receives both forms, Merrill Lynch will send the check directly to the college or university. Renewal of the scholarship in a second, third or fourth year (continuous) is predicated upon proper enrollment and achievement of a grade point average of no less than 2.0. Proper documentation of enrollment and grade point average from the college or university (by official school transcript) is required by the Scholarship Fund in advance of the future distribution of the scholarship in years two, three and four.
If the recipient does not meet these criteria or otherwise fails or refuses to provide documentary Proof of Enrollment and Official college transcript, the scholarship payment (which goes directly to the college or university) will not be made. Make sure your current address, phone number and e-mail address are on file with the Scholarship Fund Board. E-mail changes to Wanda Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
