Unifor recognizes that the costs associated with post-secondary education is a challenge for many working-class families. To assist in making education more accessible, we’ve established 28 scholarships of $2,000.00 each. Five of these scholarships are administered by the Quebec Council with a separate application form (see www.uniforquebec.org). Residents of Quebec must apply using that application process.
The scholarships are awarded to children of Unifor members in good standing. Students must be entering their first year of full-time post-secondary education (university, community college, technological institute, trade school, etc.) in a public Canadian institution. One of these scholarships will also be available to a Unifor member with at least one year seniority.
Detailed information about eligibility and how to apply for a scholarship can be found at www.unifor.org/en/education/scholarships
