Apply for a union scholarship

Applications are now being accepted for two CWA Canada scholarships for post-secondary education or training.  All Canadian Media Guild (CMG) members and their family members are eligible to apply for the grants of  $1,000 each. 
Here is what a former winner of  the scholarships had to say:    
  “Getting support from your organization for you education is always validating. The Belcarz-Zeidler scholarship was significant to me, in part because it meant my union cares about my efforts to grow and learn, and also because it was a great help financially. I have now graduated, and what I learned has really been helpful to me in my work as a journalist.”  

CMG’s parent union, CWA-Canada, is proud to offer these scholarships every year. 

Applicants must write an essay, or submit an audio, video or other presentation (maximum five minutes), on one of the following topics:

– Why the Labour movement is important to Canadians today

– What social justice means and how we can achieve it.

CWA-Canada members as well as their children, grand-children, nieces, nephews, spouse or partner are eligible. Applicants must be entering a full-time program at a government-recognized institution (college, CEGEP, university or technical/vocational institute), and all programs are accepted.

The awards honour the work of two union activists John Belcarz and Dan Zeidler
