The National Postal Mail Handlers Union is pleased to offer the opportunity for career craft members of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union, and members of their immediate families, to apply for scholarship assistance from the NPMHU Arthur S. Vallone National Scholarship Program.  Specific eligibility requirements for the program are detailed below. 

This scholarship program has been providing assistance to deserving recipients since 2001.  In February 2005, the program was renamed in honor of Arthur S. Vallone.  Arthur had served the NPMHU with distinction for over twenty-five years at his untimely passing in January 2005.  Arthur was a true believer in the Union Movement, and a tireless advocate for Mail Handlers and all working people.  His list of accomplishments and contributions to the NPMHU is lengthy.  The National Postal Mail Handlers Union is proud to honor the legacy that Brother Vallone has left behind.

The purpose of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union Arthur S. Vallone Scholarship Program is to provide financial assistance to career Mail Handlers and/or their family members who are seeking to further their education beyond high school.  The program will award a minimum of 15 scholarships (3 per Region) in the annual amount of at least $1,000, renewable for up to four (4) years or until the completion of the undergraduate degree, whichever occurs first (for a maximum of $4,000 per recipient over 4 years).  Additional scholarships may be awarded, depending upon the number of applicants and the number of renewals each year.

Scholarship eligibility details and application instructions are now available. Applicants must submit complete applications and the related materials listed at the link below to the Scholarship Committee on or before March 15, 2024.
