A special place for summer

This summer, introduce your family to a once in a lifetime experience! For more than 40 years, Black Lake has been a place where UAW members and their families come together for an experience that combines education with relaxation. It’s a place to learn about your union, unlock ideas and build new friendships with other working families throughout the United States.
It’s a one-week summer experience that will leave you and your family filled with a spirit guaranteed to strengthen your understanding and appreciation for your union. This year the UAW Family Scholarship Program will take place at Black Lake in scenic Onaway, Michigan from July 23-28, 2017.
Since 1970, thousands of UAW members and their families have participated in the Walter and May Reuther UAW Family Education Center Scholarship Program – changing their lives and those of their loved ones forever!
Through educational and recreational activities, the Family Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for adults and children to learn and think about how our union empowers us to change our workplaces and communities for ourselves and future generations. Lessons involve daily adult and children’s programs and family activities.
All active or laid-off UAW members in good standing are eligible to apply for a Family Scholarship if you have never attended the program before. You must also be willing to use your regular vacation, personal leave or union leave time (where permitted by contract) to attend.
Past participants are not eligible to reapply. Your spouse and children/grandchildren 4-18 years old may attend with you. Children under 4 years old cannot be accommodated and other relatives, non-relatives and retirees are not eligible to participate – no exceptions!
The UAW pays lodging, food and program costs for the one-week session. For information and an application form, go to and follow the links.
