We invite applications for two scholarships in memory of Lois Hill, a long-time CUPE activist and former president of Local 778.
These scholarships are worth $500 each and they are open to Indigenous members, or the children of Indigenous members of CUPE Ontario, to undertake a course of post-secondary studies for the 2022/2023 academic year
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 principles governing the selection of successful candidates.
Applicants should write a letter to CUPE Ontario outlining their academic qualifications and 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 3, 2022 for the 2022/23 year.
The CUPE Ontario Indigenous Council will select the successful candidates.
Please email the completed letter to [email protected] or mail them to:
