Awarded: John Urkevich Memorial Bursary in Labour Studies

The first recipient of the John Urkevich Memorial Bursary in Labour Studies has been awarded $425 as financial support in their studies.

Student Ayomide Awosina is a student in the Labour Studies Program in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Manitoba and qualified for this bursary, as recipients must have demonstrated a commitment to local union and/or labour issues and:

(1) be enrolled part-time or full-time in the second year of study or higher with a declared Major or Minor in Labour Studies in the Faculty of Arts;
(2) have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.5;
(3) have demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

Congratulations Ayomide!

This bursary was created in memory of John Urkevich, AESES’ long-serving Business Agent, who passed away in December 2015. John was a staunch supporter of union matters and a great asset to the AESES team over his long tenure with the organization, in both a volunteer and paid capacity.

Further contributions to the John Urkevich Memorial Bursary in Labour Studies can be made through UM’s online Front and Centre campaign page.
