Deadline Nearing for Bursary Applications

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
  • Alberta

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.

An application form can be downloaded from the Local 793 website at www.iuoelocal793.org, or by clicking here. They can also be obtained by calling the IUOE Local 772 office at 905-527-5250.
