The Society’s scholarship program to support the children of members who are pursuing post-secondary education has been rebooted. This month, the 22 winners of the 2018-19 scholarship were announced.
With more than 180 submissions, the panel of independent adjudicators noted the extraordinary strength and insight demonstrated by this year’s class of applicants. To ensure confidence in the selection process, all submissions were assessed without the applicant’s name by a four-member panel in accordance with an objective marking system. The winning applications received the highest overall scores.
“As a union of professionals, our members have leveraged post-secondary education and training to build challenging and rewarding careers,” said EVP Member Services Andy D’Andrea. “We hope that in supporting our children’s academic pursuits they, too, will have the same or better opportunities.”
In addition to a financial contribution to support their studies, scholarship recipients are invited to join Society leaders at the Society Council dinner on Sunday, November 4.
