Apply Apply: Union Bursaries
The Confederation of Canadian Unions (CCU) provides annual bursaries of $500 for dependent children of members of unions belonging to the CCU for the purpose of furthering their post-secondary education. There will be a lottery for these bursaries at our Winnipeg meeting this Fall. The dependent bursary application form is attached.
Applicants eligible for the $500 bursaries are those who are ‘attending a post-secondary school’ and MUST be ‘dependent children’ of members of Unions belonging to ‘affiliates’ of the CCU.
Further details are outlined here. The deadline for submitting applications for the bursaries is Sunday, October 15, 2017.
The successful applicants will be contacted by email after the Executive Board meeting of October 24, 2017 and upon receipt of ‘proof of enrollment’ and a 500-1000 word essay on ‘What Unionism means to you’ will be sent the award. Note that applicants are NOT required to submit an essay at this time.
The fully completed and signed bursaries forms should be sent to the following individual:
