Dependent Children Information




Here is a quick update on the progress of the newly negotiated UAW-GM Dependent Scholarship Program for Dependent Children.

The staff have been actively collaborating with a vendor daily and are making significant strides in developing the electronic application process. The goal is to have everything ready with the vendor no later than the end of the 2nd quarter or sooner of this year, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to meet that timeline.

As a friendly reminder, if you had an eligible dependent enroll in a class on or after November 20, 2023, please retain all relevant documents such as proof of enrollment, grades, school invoices, and proof of payment. Once the reimbursement process is finalized and launched, we will provide instructions on where to send these documents and outline the next steps.

To ensure a smooth operation of the electronic application process, we encourage you to list your eligible dependents in Fidelity, if you have not already done so. This will enable employees to easily select their dependents from a drop-down list when accessing the vendor's electronic application system. If a dependent is not uploaded into Fidelity, the employee will be prompted to log out of the vendor's system, upload their dependent in Fidelity, wait for a week, and then log back in to create an application on their dependent’s behalf.

Lastly, we would like to provide you with an overview of the program process and guidelines:

Eligibility for the Program:

  • Dependent children of active UAW represented employees pursuing post-secondary education or training at an institution accredited by a governmental or nationally recognized agency are eligible to apply for continuing education support.
  • The child must be the employee's child or the child of the employee's spouse through birth, legal adoption, or legal guardianship.
  • Dependent children must be unmarried and under the age of 26 at the time of course enrollment.
  • Spouses are not included.

As of April 30th, 2024, a participant who attempts to access the EdAssist site via Internet Explorer will see a message that they are using a web browser that is not supported and will have to use a different browser to access their benefit.
