Our mission to unite people with opportunities and create thriving, self-sufficient residents is what defines our commitment to the Washington, DC community. Through our annual fundraising event, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Breakfast, we celebrate and honor the legacy of Rev. Dr. King Jr., while raising funds for students holding on to their dream of post-secondary education. Through funds raised for the UPO/Joseph A. Beavers Scholarship, five, $10,000 scholarships are awarded to low-income students who aspire to change the quality of their lives.
The UPO/Joseph A. Beavers Scholarship, named in honor of the late Mr. Joseph A. Beavers, a longtime UPO Board member and legendary District of Columbia labor leader, awards the scholarships to ambitious students who aspire to change the quality of their lives and their community.
Since 1990, the scholarship fund raised over $650,000 and assisted 150 DC students realizing their dream of higher education.
With your support, the dream of a college education can become a reality. Everyone deserves an opportunity to succeed.
We salute the 2013 UPO Joseph A. Beavers Scholarship Recipients!
