The CCU/CSC provides annual 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 Executive Board meeting in Ottawa in October. For the bursary applications (French and English versions), please click the below two links:
Applicants eligible for the $500 bursaries are those who are ‘attending a post-secondary school’ and MUST be ‘dependent children’ of members of Unions belonging to ‘affiliates’ of the CCU/CSC.
The successful applicants will be contacted by email after the Executive Board meeting on October 5, 2019. Upon receipt of ‘proof of enrollment’ and a 500-1000 word essay on ‘What Unionism means to you’, the winners will be sent the award. See further details on the linked forms. Note that you are NOT required to submit an essay at this time.
The deadline for submitting the bursary application is Monday, September 30, 2019.
The completed and signed bursary forms should be sent to (a scanned copy of the completed form may be sent via email):
