The George Heller Memorial Scholarship Fund of the AFTRA Foundation

Posted

The George Heller Memorial Scholarship Fund of the AFTRA Foundation was established to honor the key founder of the union, George Heller, and now memorializes him as well as many other AFTRA members and executives who cared about and contributed to the union.

Scholarships are offered by the Foundation to AFTRA members and their dependents for academic study in any field including broadcast, journalism and labor relations or for professional training in the arts.

Eligibility requires AFTRA membership in good standing for at least five years. The criteria for the limited number of scholarships available are academic excellence, financial need and acceptance/enrollment in a university, professional school or other accredited institution of higher education.

Each year, the deadline for submission of applications, including all required materials, is May 1st. Applications are carefully considered and award decisions made in June, and applicants are notified accordingly.

Twelve to fifteen scholarships, not subject to renewal, are currently awarded up to a maximum of $2,500 each and are funded entirely by tax deductible contributions to the George Heller Memorial Scholarship Fund of the AFTRA Foundation.
