2021 Greater Victoria CUPE Scholarship Applications

CUPE Local 410 members have once again contributed generously to this scholarship fund. These scholarships are open only to children 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, a reference letter, and a one-page informative letter. An eligible student is limited to one award from the fund and will be under the age of 25 on December 31st of this year. More information, eligibility criteria and FAQs are included in the application forms.

The Application form for all Post-Secondary Students is available in PDF form on our CUPE Local 410 Website or may be found on any other participating CUPE Local’s website (see PDF file, below).

STUDENTS MUST USE THE CURRENT (Revised: May 2021) “GV CUPE Scholarship Award Application Form 2021.”  DO NOT USE ANY OTHER FORM OR YOU MAY BE AT A DISADVANTAGE TO RECEIVE THIS AWARD.
