2013 UFCW Canada Migrant Workers Scholarships

Date and time

Migration and the hope of providing a better future for our children have always gone hand in hand. As the largest private-sector union in Canada, UFCW Canada understands the importance of education. As such, we are offering 20 scholarships for the children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews of migrant workers.

Each scholarship is in the amount of $500 CDN. Since 2010, UFCW Canada’s Migrant Workers Scholarships have generated over 9,000 applications from around the globe and produced 25 extraordinary recipients.

Application Deadline:
December 31, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. Only those accepted to receive the scholarships will be notified via registered mail or email by May 31, 2014.

Scholarship Criteria:
Only those persons who entered Canada to work under the Temporary Foreign Workers Program such as a live-in caregiver, a seasonal agriculture worker, or a temporary foreign worker in any industry (“the Applicant”) are eligible to apply. An Applicant can nominate his/ her children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews.

The Nominee Child may be living in any country, can be of any nationality, must be between 4-25 years of age, and must be attending or hoping to attend an educational institution.
