The Universal Workers Union Local 183 Scholarship Trust Fund was established with the purpose of providing a partial scholarship to members of Local 183, their children and grandchildren. This is to encourage member's families, as representatives of the diverse cultural communities which make up Local 183, in accessing high quality post-secondary education.
Any student who has graduated or who will be graduating from an Ontario High School or an equivalent program and will be attending a recognized post-secondary institution such as a College or University in the coming school year, and is a member, the child or grandchild of a Local 183 member or retiree in good standing is eligible to apply for consideration.
ANYONE WHO WAS AWARDED A LOCAL 183 SCHOLARSHIP IN THE PAST IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO APPLY AGAIN, EVEN IF THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE PAST AWARD WAS NOT ACCESSED.
A number of scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis to successful applicants as chosen by the Fund's Academic Committee. Each scholarship will be for a maximum of $2,500.00 per annum, for a period of up to four (4) years provided the successful applicant remains in full-time attendance at a post-secondary institution and maintains a passing grade in all subjects. Total value of the scholarship over the four year period will not exceed $10,000.00. Areas of study which require less time to complete will only receive the award for the actual length of said program. Total value will not be averaged over a shortened period of time.
The application has been made available for download. Please ensure that your application is submitted before the July 13, 2012 submission date in order to ensure that you will be eligible for consideration.
