Bursaries and Scholarships

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 their members children to help them attend a college or university. Check out the different opportunities for the children of CUPE 556 members.
