The deadline is nearing for Jack Redshaw Scholarships which are available to dependents of IUOE Local 793 members.
Deadline for applications is Friday, Sept. 11, 2015.
Applicants who applied previously but were not awarded a scholarship can re-apply.
The scholarships are available to all the sons, daughters and grandchildren of Local 793 members who are in good standing at the time of selection of the awards.
The award is named in honour of the late Jack Redshaw, who was a Local 793 member for 42 years. He was a business rep for 20 years and also served as labour relations manager and recording-corresponding secretary of the union.
Each year, the business manager of Local 793 determines the maximum amount of each scholarship and number of scholarships to be awarded.
Applications must be supported by:
- Other evidence of potential ability to succeed in the post-secondary program; and
- A letter of recommendation from an individual with personal academic knowledge of the person making the application as well as why a scholarship should be awarded.
In addition, applicants must submit an essay of not more than 1,000 words on either:
- Reasons why this scholarship will help me.
- The impact on my life of being a dependent of a Local 793 union member.
Applications can be downloaded from the members section of the Local 793 website by clicking here. Applications can also be obtained by contacting any Local 793 area office.
