GSU scholarship committee members Jim Brown (GSU president), Brett North (GSU vice president), and Brian Cowan (GSU council member) were tasked with reviewing applications and choosing this year’s recipients from a competitive pool of applicants.
“Tuition fees and accommodation costs continue to increase,” said GSU general secretary Hugh Wagner. “We are pleased to award these scholarships and help these students with their education costs.”
Congratulations to our recipients and thank you to our committee for their hard work.
The scholarship competition is open annually to GSU members, their spouses, and dependent children who have not previously won a GSU scholarship.
Scholarship applicants must be enrolled in a diploma, degree, or certificate program at a community college, university, trade school, or technical institute as a full-time student in any country.
