As faculty at George Brown College and members of OPSEU Local 556, your local union dues support five $1000 scholarships/bursaries for full time students that can demonstrate a financial need. These scholarships/bursaries are made possible through your local union dues deduction. As directed by the local membership, three of the five scholarships/bursaries are dedicated to full time aboriginal students and the other two are for the full time student population at large.
To apply for any of these scholarships/bursaries, the student is to forward a brief essay outlining:
- which scholarship/bursary they are applying for (i.e. Aboriginal or General)
- provide a brief description of their background
- list the program and year of study that they are currently enrolled in
- outline the reason(s) for applying for the scholarship (financial need will be given top priority)
The letter of application must have an attachment from one of their Professors that contains a brief endorsement.
The complete documentation is to be forwarded to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The application must be received by March 25, 2016 and only the successful applicants will be notified. Applications received after March 25th will not be considered.
Your cooperation in ensuring our full time student population is aware of these scholarships/bursaries is greatly appreciated. Please note that the application must be accompanied by a brief endorsement from one of their Professors.
All information and applications received will be kept confidential and will be appropriately disposed of once the successful applicants have been chosen by the committee.
