Long term care committee scholarships

The Long-Term Care Coordinating Committee will be offering two scholarships valued at $250.00 each, available to members who’s locals are affiliated with the LTCCC, to honour our past member Michael McNeil.

“Mike wore just about every hat imaginable in his union career, but was most known for his decades of work as a CUPE Occasional Instructor, facilitating countless schools and workshops, where he made literally hundreds of friendships from one end of the province to the other. He had just turned 60 years old in February, and became president of CUPE Nova Scotia in November, 2015, after a lifetime of union activism and leadership. He passed suddenly on Saturday, March 12, 2016 in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, where he had been travelling on union business.”

Individuals planning enrolment at an accredited community college or post-secondary institution in the 2020/2021 academic year may make application.  The successful applicant will be required to provide proof of registration.

Eligibility is based on CUPE Members that work either in a nursing home facility or a facility under the Department of Community Services.
