UFCW Scholarships

As an ally and resource to the membership, UFCW Canada is committed to providing opportunities to improve the future of members and their families. One initiative we’re particularly proud of is the Beggs-Dowling-Mathieu Scholarships Program which over the past two decades has awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships to UFCW Canada members and members of their families.

Allocated by regions across Canada these scholarships are named as a lasting tribute to three past leaders of our union: William Beggs, Fred Dowling, and Roméo Mathieu.
Each year UFCW Canada offers 18 annual Beggs-Dowling-Mathieu Scholarships of $1,000 each to active members and their family members for post-secondary study. If you are a UFCW Canada member, you, your spouse and children are eligible to apply if you are attending full-time studies at a Canadian university, college, or other recognized post-secondary institution.
Applying for the Beggs – Dowling – Mathieu Scholarship is easy. You don’t have to be an A+ student. All it requires is a passion for learning, enrollment at a post-secondary institution, and just a few minutes to complete the online application.
The deadline for applying for the Beggs – Dowling – Mathieu Scholarships is September 30.
