SEIU has a long and proud history of helping union members pursue their dreams through higher education. SEIU offers scholarship opportunities to support studies in areas including the arts, social justice, and the healthcare field. All scholarships are open to members and their children.
Brittney Zarling — daughter of SEIU Local 221 member Wayne Zarling — was awarded the 2014 SEIU Lottery Scholarship. Brittney is currently attending San Diego State University as a Biology major with an emphaisis in Marine Biology. “Growing up with a parent who was active in the union has been an educational experience because my father and I have been able to talk about all of the benefits a union can offer. For my family, the union has been crucial in providing us the opportunity to further improve or lives and the community around us. As a result, the union has given me the chance to further my education.”
