We are now accepting applications for the 2015 awards that will be decided in October or November 2015. Recipients will be awarded late November or early December.
CUPE 2081 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 2 awards 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 2081 Website or may be found on any other participating CUPE Local’s website (see PDF file, attached).
STUDENTS MUST USE THE CURRENT (Revised: April 2015) “GV CUPE Scholarship Award Application Form 2015.” DO NOT USE ANY OTHER FORM OR YOU MAY BE AT A DISADVANTAGE TO RECEIVE THIS AWARD.
It is also very important to note that the proof of registration must be dated AFTER the drop deadline in September unless you also provide proof of payment for the courses. Acceptance letters are not proof of enrolment.
Deadline: September 30 @ 4:00pm.
