The Overwaitea Food Group is proud to have partnered with UFCW Local 1518 to establish a Joint Diversity and Training Trust to support and maintain a respectful and positive working environment. Our goal is to work collaboratively to promote diversity awareness and build strong, healthy and mutually beneficial relationships within the diverse communities that we serve.
We help students who share this commitment by offering the Joint Diversity Scholarship.
Up to ten $1,000 scholarships are available and will be awarded to applicants who have promoted diversity awareness and acceptance in their in their community and have not previously received the Joint Diversity Scholarship.
This scholarship is available to students who are BC residents and are going to be pursuing post-secondary education at an accredited institution in the fall of 2018. Students in all stages of their education are eligible.
Applicants are asked to demonstrate how they promote diversity awareness and acceptance in their community.
Please note that the application process will re-open in January 2018 and applications must be received by May 1, 2018.
