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.
CUPE BC offers the Aubrey Burton/Reg Ford Memorial Scholarship. (CUPE 23 offers the Ethel Lau Scholarship – more information here) Both awards are available to members or their children who are entering their first year of post-secondary education.
