Two opportunities for members or their immediate family.

LIUNA Local 3000 offers its Union members and immediate family two scholarships of $2000 each. The scholarship opportunities are offered every spring, with scholarship applications due by September 15th, 2023.

The Members Memorial Scholarship honours members that were active in the Union and the labour movement prior to their passing.

For more information about the Members Memorial Scholarship click here.

The Vince Vocal Scholarship is awarded in the name of the founding President of the Canadian National Federation of Independent Unions. Vince Vocal took the idea of combining the resources of a number of small independent Unions to create a larger federation of Unions. After years of dedication and hard work, and through CNFIU's affiliation in 1998 with LIUNA, Vince's vision has evolved into the entity we know today as LIUNA Local 3000.
