Greater Victoria CUPE Scholarships

2017 Greater Victoria CUPE Scholarship Applications

CUPE 951 members have once again contributed generously to this scholarship fund! These scholarships are open only to sons and daughters of active members of contributing locals* of the Canadian Union of Public Employees of the Greater Victoria area.

The selection will be based on a combination of GPA/academic standing, 1 reference letter, and a 1 page informative letter. An eligible student is limited to 1 award from the fund, and will be under the age of 25 on December 31 of this year. More information, eligibility criteria and FAQ’s are included in the application forms.

The Application form for all Post-Secondary Students is available in PDF form on our CUPE 951 Website or may be found on any other participating CUPE Local’s website (see PDF file, below).

STUDENTS MUST USE THE CURRENT (Revised: June 2017) “GV CUPE Scholarship application 2017.”  DO NOT USE ANY OTHER FORM OR YOU MAY BE AT A DISADVANTAGE TO RECEIVE THIS AWARD.

Deadline: September 29.

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 awards that will be decided in October or November 2017. Recipients will be awarded late November or early December.

For more information, contact Local 951s representative to the GV CUPE Scholarship Fund, Lori-Ann Larsen, llarsen@uvic.ca
