NASRCC Scholarship 2023

NASRCC Scholarshipv

The NASRCC Scholarship application is now available online at http://www.nasrcc.org/scholarship. The program provides $100,000 in scholarships each year. This year’s question asks students to discuss how Joe Biden has called himself the most pro-union president in our lifetime. Evaluate that claim by discussing what he has done, directly and indirectly, to benefit unions and union workers. Create context by comparing his actions—positive and negative—with other recent presidents, particularly Donald Trump.
