Grad cap and diploma atop textbooks

The Canadian Labour Congress has teamed up with United Way/Centraide Canada to offer a $2,500 scholarship to a labour activist who is staring their first year of post-secondary studies in September.

Please read the letter below. The deadline for completed applications is Friday, June 7. Visit the Canadian Labour Congress website for further details.

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) Young Workers Program and the United Way Centraide Canada (UWCC) are pleased to present the annual CLC/UWCC Post-Secondary Scholarship.

The CLC and the UWCC are long-time partners in taking action to create prosperous, inclusive, diverse and respectful communities, safer workplaces, and a fairer Canada for working people. Two years ago, we created a post-secondary scholarship in recognition of the important opportunities college or university education can provide for young people. Too often, these opportunities are out of reach for working-class people due to ever-increasing tuition fees.

This $2,500 scholarship is offered in recognition of the efforts of young workers across Canada who have demonstrated a commitment to positively impacting social and workplace issues in their community.
