In 2018, Alexandria Masse from Windsor, Ontario, the child of an Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario union member, wrote a compelling essay about her leadership and activism in her community as a young woman of colour and won the CLC/UWCC Post-Secondary Scholarship.
Will 2019 be your year?
The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) Young Workers Program and the United Way Centraide Canada (UWCC) are again pleased to sponsor the annual CLC/UWCC Post-Secondary Scholarship.
The CLC and the UWCC are long-time partners in taking action to create prosperous, inclusive, diverse and respectful communities, safer workplaces, and a fairer Canada for working people. Two years ago, they created a post-secondary scholarship in recognition of the essential opportunities college, or university education can provide for young people.
Too often, these opportunities are out of reach for working-class people due to ever-increasing tuition fees.
This $2,500 scholarship is offered in recognition of the efforts of young workers across Canada who have demonstrated a commitment to positively impacting social and workplace issues in their community.
The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, June 7, 2019.
