Greater Victoria CUPE Scholarships

Greater Victoria CUPE Scholarships

For over 20 years, CUPE 951 members have contributed generously to this Post-Secondary education 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.

Currently, the selection is 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 the scholarship year. More information, eligibility criteria and FAQ’s are included in the application form.

The application form for students attending Post-Secondary Educational institutions full-time will be available in PDF format on our CUPE 951 website in June. (Deadline: September 30). The scholarship awards are typically decided in October or November of each year and the recipients will be awarded late November or early December.
