THE LOCAL 500 LES BUTTERWORTH SCHOLARSHIP AND BURSARY PROGRAM is inviting applications for its 2023 scholarship and bursary awards.
This year the fund is offering:
  • One scholarship of $2,000
  • Three bursaries of $1,000 each.
The scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic achievement and the bursaries on the basis of good academic standing with consideration of financial need. The awards are available for use in an accredited post secondary school, college or university in Manitoba for the 2023-2024 academic year.
Awards can only be used at Canadian schools outside Manitoba when the course of studies is not offered in Manitoba. Funds will be paid directly to the school, college or university that the student is attending.
The competition is open to members in good standing of the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 500 and their families. Family is defined as: spouse, children, grandchildren, sibling, children-inlaw.
Also eligible are families of disabled, retired or deceased members who were members in good standing at the time of their disability, retirement or death.
To be eligible for an award, applicants must elect a full year’s study for the year 2023-2024.
Applicants who have completed one semester or more at a post-secondary school, college or university may also apply.
NOTE: Previous award winners are not eligible to apply, however previous unsuccessful applicants are eligible to apply.
Method of selection
A selection committee of three prominent Winnipeg citizens will review the applications and other information provided. They may conduct interviews to determine the award winners if they choose. The Board of Directors of
the Les Butterworth Scholarship Fund Inc. has no choice in the selection of the winners and no member of the Selection Committee can be a member of CUPE Local 500. The decision of the Selection Committee is final.
