About the Basil Paterson Scholarship

The Basil Paterson Scholarship provides tuition and financial support to home care workers enrolled in college and allied health certification programs. Awards are based on a competitive review process and if granted, may be used to pay for up to 9 credits per semester. Since we recognize the real-world difficulties our home care workers often encounter as they pursue their academic and career goals, the scholarship includes a cash stipend each academic term providing resources to cover tuition and college fees, transportation, child-care expenses and, where applicable, the cost of review courses for licensing exams.

The program is named after Basil A. Paterson, who had a special place in his heart for the Union’s home care workers. Mr. Paterson was a labor law attorney for more than 45 years and a former Secretary of State of New York. He spent 20 years as counsel for 1199SEIU Home Care and hospital workers.
