“I am so happy to have been chosen as a recipient of this scholarship. A post-secondary education has been a long-time goal of mine, and I hope to give back to my community when I graduate. The cost of paying for tuition and books adds up quickly, and the UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship will go a long way in helping me cover those expenses. Thank you UFCW!”
