The CCU provides bursaries of $500 for dependent children of members of unions belonging to the CCU/CSC for the purpose of furthering their post-secondary education. There will be a lottery for these bursaries at the CCU meeting on October 5, 2019.
Dependent children of NSUPE members who are currently enrolled in a post secondary institution are eligible to receive the CCU John St-Amand / Madeleine Parent Bursary.
The successful applicants will be contacted by email after the Executive Board meeting in October 2019 and upon receipt of ‘proof of enrollment’ and a 500-1000 word essay on ‘What Unionism Means to You’ will be sent the award.
The application deadline is Monday, September 30, 2019.
The fully completed and signed form can be emailed, faxed, or mailed to Shelby Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org or Melissa Morse at email@example.com, 902-454-4924, or mailed to NSUPE, 103 Thorne Avenue, Dartmouth, NS, B3B 0A4.
