Over the past several decades, CSEA SEIU Local 2001 has had the honor of awarding millions of dollars in educational scholarships to the children and grandchildren of our members.These scholarships have helped address the ever-increasing cost of higher education to ensure that our working-class children have a pathway to further opportunities.2020 proved to be the most unique and challenging year for the McCusker Committee- they faced these obstacles head on and found new and creative ways to fundraise and get through the hundreds of applications.The McCusker Scholarship is made up solely from donations from our members and chapters. Every February the McCusker Committee kicks off the year with a call for donations because without our members the scholarship would not exist. This year we hope to be able to award more scholarships than before, so please help us get to our goal! You can donate via GoFundMe or by checks:To Donate through GoFundMe: To Donate By Check:
