The SAG-AFTRA Dan Mallinger Scholarship Fund was renamed in 1992 to honor Pittsburgh AFTRA’s longtime Executive Director, Dan Mallinger, and now memorializes him as well as many other SAG-AFTRA members and executives who cared about and contributed to the Union.

Scholarships are offered by the Scholarship Committee to SAG-AFTRA members or their dependent children for academic study in any field - including broadcast, journalism and labor relations - or for professional training in the arts. Eligibility requires SAG-AFTRA membership in good standing for the five years preceding the extended application deadline of June 1, 2014 as well as residence in the jurisdiction of the Ohio-Pittsburgh Local. The criteria for the limited number of scholarships available include academic excellence, financial need, and acceptance or enrollment in a university, professional school or other accredited institution of higher education.

Please download the Application, Advisor Form, and Scholarship Information online and submit all required materials. Requests made by mail for applications should include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. All applications and supporting materials must be postmarked by June 1, 2014 at the very latest.

Applications are carefully considered and recipient award decisions will be made in June by the Ohio-Pittsburgh Local Scholarship Committee.

Several scholarships will be awarded up to a maximum of $2,000 each. Scholarships are funded entirely by contributions to the SAG-AFTRA Dan Mallinger Scholarship Fund.
