Congrats to the 2020 MGEU Bursary Winners!
Aug 20, 2020
The MGEU is pleased to announce the 2020 recipients of nearly $30,000 in MGEU educational scholarships and bursaries.
“Even with all the uncertainty around returning to classes this fall, it was great to see so many MGEU members and their families put their names forward,” said MGEU President Michelle Gawronsky. “Our union is about building a better life for our members and these bursaries give people the chance to pursue an education and upgrade their skills.”
Each year, sixteen bursaries are awarded based on financial need. Two bursaries are available in each of the MGEU’s eight geographically-defined Areas: one to an MGEU member and one to a spouse/common-law partner, child or ward of an MGEU member.
The MGEU also awarded the Joseph Grenier Bursary, available to an MGEU health care member in the HCSS Component (or spouse/common-law partner or child pursuing a health care profession) as well as the Peter Olfert Scholarship, which is available to a member or family member studying public policy (i.e. legislation, programs and services).
Congratulations to all of the bursary/scholarship recipients!
