Unifor is committed to building the strongest and most effective union to bargain on behalf of our members, work with our members to improve their rights, and extend the benefits of unionization to non-unionized workers in Canada.  We are also concerned about the lives of our members’ families.  We recognize that post-secondary education is out of reach for many working-class children due to skyrocketing tuition fees.  To assist in making education more accessible, we’ve established 28 scholarships worth $2,000.00 each.

The scholarships are awarded to sons/daughters of Unifor members in good standing.  Students must be entering their first year of full-time post-secondary education (university, community college, technological institute, trade school, etc.) in a public Canadian institution.  One of these scholarships will also be available to a Unifor member with at least one year seniority.  These are entrance Scholarships only and are not renewable for students entering subsequent years of study.
