CSEA College Scholarships
2019 Irving Flaumenbaum Memorial Scholarship, Pearl Insurance and MetLife Scholarship
High school seniors who apply for the Flaumenbaum Scholarship are automatically in the running for the Pearl Insurance and MetLife Insurance Company Scholarships.
$23,000 in scholarship money is available to CSEA members' children.
The Irving Flaumenbaum Award will provide 18 $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors, three in each region. Irving was a spirited CSEA activist for more than three decades. He was president of Long Island Region 1 and an AFSCME International Vice President at the time of his death.
The Pearl Insurance and MetLife Insurance Company Scholarships will provide two awards of $2,500 each. The top 2 percent of scholastic achievers, based on high school average, class rank, and SAT scores, will be selected to create the eligibility pool for this scholarship. The Pearl Insurance Award is in memory of Charles Foster, a long-time CSEA activist who began with CSEA in the 1930s. Mr. Foster was also the first business officer of the SUNY system, and, in recognition of that, this scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school senior entering the SUNY system.
The MetLife Award is named for Joseph D. Lochner, CSEA's first employee and former executive director who spent more than 40 years in service to this union.
Application deadline is April 15, 2019. Winners will be notified in June and announced on the CSEA website.
