Once again we are inviting applications for two scholarships in memory of Lois Hill, a long-time CUPE activist and former president of Local 778.
The scholarships are worth $500 each and they are open to Aboriginal members, or the children of Aboriginal members of CUPE Ontario, to undertake a course of post-secondary studies for the 2012/13 academic year.
We want to emphasize the importance of encouraging members to submit applications for these scholarships this year.
In order to qualify, an applicant must be accepted into a program of study at a public or union-based institute of post-secondary education. Academic merit, or the equivalence in career experience, are the principals governing the selection of successful candidates.
Applicants should write a letter to CUPE Ontario outlining their academic qualifications, their career experience, and indicate why they should be accepted for a scholarship. The particular course of study and education institution must also be stated in the letter. Applications should be received at CUPE Ontario no later than September 30, 2012.
A Division committee will select the successful candidates. Applicants will be informed of the committee’s decision before the end of September.
