Post Secondary Bursaries

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 members and their children to help them attend a college or university. You will have to check with your steward or local executive to find out if your local offers any bursaries.

CUPE BC offers bursaries to CUPE members or their children planning on entering post-secondary education are encouraged to apply for this annual bursaries. The Aubrey Burton/Reg Ford Memorial Scholarships are available every year. You can find the application form here.
