We have the education of Steelworker families at heart.
Because we know that education is at the heart of success and obtaining good jobs, every year, the United Steelworkers distribute 21 scholarships of $1,000 each to qualified secondary students across Canada, to be distributed as follows:
District 3: 5 Scholarships (Western Provinces)
District 5: 6 Scholarships (Quebec)
District 6: 2 Scholarships (Atlantic Region)
District 6: 6 Scholarships (Ontario)
National Locals: 2 Scholarships
These scholarships are intended to support Steelworker members who spend many years saving to allow their children to pursue post-secondary education.
1) The scholarships shall be awarded to members of the United Steelworkers in good standing, or their children, who are completing high school and starting post-secondary studies this year. "Children" include biological or birth children, children by adoption, and children by other, equivalent relationship.
2) Applicants who have previously won a USW Post-Secondary Scholarship are NOT eligible to win again.
3) Applicants who have already begun their post-secondary studies are NOT eligible for this award.
