UHEW Scholarships

The Union of Health and Environment Workers believes that everyone has the right to achieve his/her goals through education and hard work.  With this in mind, UHEW offers five scholarships each year:

  • Two scholarships are awarded on scholastic achievement for $3,000 each and named the Tony Tilley Scholastic Award and the Mary Stewart Scholastic Award;
  • One scholarship in the amount of $3,000 for a candidate entering into an apprenticeship program;
  • One scholarship in the amount of $3,000 is awarded to a member returning to school on a full-time basis to further his or her education; and
  • One Human Rights scholarship in the amount of $3,000 for a candidate struggling with a disability while striving for a higher education.

APPLICATIONS

Applications for the scholarships are invited annually by means of a notice issued by the UHEW. Application forms for the scholarships, offered to qualified dependents and/or members of the UHEW membership, can also be obtained on request from your Local or Sub-Local President.
