CUPE policy supports a truly public post-secondary education system - one with no economic barriers to education. Until that happens, some CUPE locals have set up bursary programs for members and their children to help them attend a college or university. You will have to check with your steward or local executive to find out if your local offers any bursaries.
CUPE BC continues to offer the Aubrey Burton/Reg Ford Memorial Scholarship to CUPE members, their spouses or their children at a level of four scholarships of $500.00 each. The Aubrey Burton/Reg Ford Memorial Scholarships are available every year. You can find the application form attached below. For more information, please click here.
