The United Faculty of Miami Dade College is offering at least 15 $500 scholarships. The deadline to apply is Jan. 31. Applications can be accessed at www.ufmdc.org
Students must complete at least twelve credit hours by the end of the fall semester, have a minimum GPA of 3.0 and plan on either continuing their studies at MDC or transfer to a four-year institution. Students who meet these requirements must then obtain a sealed letter of recommendation from a MDC professor who is a member of UFMDC.

UFMDC is the teachers union for MDC that became the official bargaining agent on behalf of faculty in 1998. For more than a decade, they have been offering scholarships to students. The scholarships were named in remembrance of the founding members and close associates to the union.
