HEU bursary deadline approaching – August 11

The HEU bursaries committee is accepting application forms for the 2006/2007 academic year until Friday, August 11.

Each year, HEU’s Provincial Office and several union locals make about 20 bursaries available to HEU members, their children and spouses, including common-law and same-sex partners.

Bursaries – ranging from $350 to $1,000 – are tenable at any post-secondary educational institution and are awarded to students who need financial assistance and can demonstrate satisfactory academic standing.

You can download application forms and mail them to our Provincial Office at 5000 North Fraser Way, Burnaby, BC V5J 5M3, or fax to 604-739-1510. They must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on August 11, 2006.

The bursaries are administered by a bursaries committee under the direction of HEU’s Provincial Executive.
