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.
UFCW Canada has also expanded the borders of opportunity through an empowering scholarship program for the families of temporary workers. In 2014, the UFCW Canada Migrant Workers Scholarships Program will award 20 scholarships of $500 each for the children, grandchildren, sisters, brothers, nieces, or nephews of migrant workers in Canada.
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.
Children nominated for the scholarships can be of any nationality and do not have to reside in Canada.
Deadline: December 31, 2014
