UAW Region 1A Pioneer Scholarship

Rory L. Gamble Regional Director


This Program has been undertaken by the Retired Workers Council because neither the Michigan legislature, nor the Congress have provided the kind of educational opportunities deperately needed by young adults in our complex world. We continue to struggle to remove the economic barriers to full education opportunities while at the same time trying to help a few families provide their children with education beyond high school.

Individuals that are eligible for this scholarship include: Children, Grandchildren or Wards of a member in good standing, working or retired in a local union located in UAW Region 1A. The individual must be graduating in the year that the contest is being held and must be tentatively accepted into an accredited college, community college or career-training institute.

Each Contestant must submit a 500 words or less essay on either:

The Director's Award topic: "What I Think America Should Be" (This essay must show an appreciation of the issues we face in our country and presents the author's views of what needs to be done about them).

Retired Worker's Award: "What the UAW has meant to my Family" (This essay should reflect the student's knowledge of UAW history, what it has won (half the essay) and how these have affected the lives of the contestant's family (must be the other half)


  • Director's Award- 2 Scholarships of $1500 each
  • Retired Workers Award- 6 Scholarships of $1000 each

The required applications are attached to this article and need to be submitted to UAW Region 1A completed with all of the required documentation and signatures no later than APRIL 30, 2014.

Author Greg Palast, in his book, "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits," examines the role Mitt Romney played in the Delphi bailout and how he and other economic vultures made millions as the storied parts supplier went into and came out of bankruptcy. In this video, Palast tells how Mitt and Ann Romney made at least $15 million from the carcass of Delphi and as much as $115 million.  

It also shows how Romney's cronies made more than $4 billion off the bankruptcy. These same billionaires also contributed millions to his presidential campaign. 

DETROIT -- Two days after GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a crowd near Toledo, Ohio, that Chrysler was moving all Jeep production to China, the GOP candidate appears to be unfazed by his incorrect remarks and remains mum on the subject..  Read more >>>
