Program status

We appreciate your interest in the Education Fund’s programs and services. We have received a tremendous response to our education and training programs. As such we have reached our enrollment limit for many of our current programs and as a result, we have currently paused this Education Fund program application for California members. We may have availability for members in the Northwest, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico and we encourage you to login to MyEdFund to check availability.

Please be reassured that, regardless of your location, you can create an individualized educational plan for 2023 by making an appointment today with your Career Counselor/Regional Coordinator. This can also be done via MyEdFund, our secure, online member portal.
