To apply, you need:
To be a continuous active member of Local 247 for the last 6 months in the current academic year. Membership status will be verified once the application is received. Education grants are available to members only, not their dependants.
Proof of actual registration in at least three (3) credits (1 course) but no more than eight (8) credits of post-secondary education in a degree or diploma course program at a recognized university or community college in Canada. Please submit one of the following: (a) copy of class schedule (with Student & School name on schedule); (b) a receipt of confirming tuition fees have been paid for a program with a start date in the current year (receipt must show Student & School name and list of classes); OR (c) a letter from the university or college confirming current part-time registration. Letters of admission or tuition invoices will not be accepted.

Members can expect to receive an immediate confimation email upon submission of their application. Please ensure your email is entered accurately.
NOTIFICATION: All applicants will be subject to review by the scholarship committee. Winners will be notified no later than the end of October. Education grant applicants must be enrolled in an accredited institute as a part-time student in the same calendar year that the education grant is awarded. Applicants who are full-time students are only eligible for the scholarship program, not the education grant. Please do not apply for both.
