Deadline for applications for the IUOE Canadian Conference bursaries is Aug. 1, 2017.
There are 10 bursaries of $750 each.
The bursaries are intended to provide financial assistance to students who are dependents of IUOE members.
The bursary recipient must be entering the first or subsequent year of a full-time course of study (at least two years in length) leading to a diploma, certificate or degree from any recognized public Canadian college or university.
Applications are considered from four regions:
- Atlantic Canada
- Quebec and Ontario
- Saskatchewan and Manitoba
Applications must be supported by transcripts of high school achievement and accompanied by a detailed letter of recommendation from an individual with personal academic knowledge of the candidate, outlining reasons why the bursary should be awarded.
In addition, applicants must submit a 1,000-word essay on the reason why the bursary will be of assistance or the impact that being a dependent of a union member has had on the applicant’s life.
