The deadline for the 8 hours of volunteer community service that a dependent child must complete at a 501(c)3 for the UAW-Ford Community Engagement Scholarship has been extended to the scholarship application deadline of June 1 of each year. For example, applications and community service for the 2020 scholarship must be completed and submitted by June 1, 2021.
The UAW and Ford Motor Company believes this will avoid deadline confusion and contractual language interpretation.
Please note: Volunteer community service hours completed in 2021 for the 2020 scholarship may not be resubmitted for the 2021 scholarship. Each year the scholarship is applied for must have 8 separate hours of community service performed.
