CUPE Ontario Lois Hill Scholarships

Once again CUPE Ontario is inviting applications for two scholarships in memory of Lois Hill, long-time CUPE activist and former president of Local 778.

The scholarships are worth $500 each and they are open to Aboriginal members, or children of Aboriginal members, to undertake a course of post-secondary studies for 2004/2005 academic year.

CUPE Ontario wants to emphasize the importance of encouraging members to submit applications for these scholarships this year.

In order to qualify, an applicant must be into a programme of study at a public or union-based institute of post-secondary education. Academic merit, or the equivalence in career experience, are the principals governing the selection of successful candidates.

Applicants should write a letter to CUPE Ontario outlining their academic qualifications, their career experience, an indicate why they should be accepted for a scholarship. The particular course of study and education institution must also be stated in the letter. Applications should be received at CUPE Ontario no later than May 30, 2005.

A Division committee will select the successful candidates. Applicants will be informed of the committee's decision before the end of July 2005.

the original format of this letter received at the Local's Office was
Signed by:
Patrick (Sid) Ryan CUPE Ontario President
Brian O'Keefe CUPE Ontario Secretary-Treasurer
