The Western Union Foundation Family Scholarship
From 2008-2016, IIE administered the Western Union Family Scholarship Program. The Family Scholarship Program was intended to help two members of the same family move up the economic development ladder through education. The program helped immigrant/migrant fathers and sons, mothers and daughters and brothers and sisters move up the economic ladder through education and training. Scholarships may be used for college/university tuition, language acquisition classes, technical/skills training, and GED classes, with two family members receiving a scholarship to help achieve the type of education they need in order to create a brighter future for their entire family.
The Family Scholarship has been discontinued beginning in 2016. No new applications are being accepted for this program. However, interested parties can visit the Western Union Foundation website for other scholarship opportunities.
