Josie Gould Memorial Scholarship

2021 Scholarship Winners      

Sister Josie Gould was one of the original members of the Union of Northern Workers.  Her untiring efforts had profound effects on union members who knew her over the years.  

Because of her staunch commitment to the UNW, and because of her devotion to helping youth, the Josie Gould Scholarship was created upon her retirement.  

After her death in 2008, the scholarship was renamed the "Josie Gould Memorial Scholarship."  

Today, in her name, financial assistance for post-secondary education is awarded every year to students who understand the importance of the labour movement.

Scholarships are open to UNW members and current, retired and deceased members' relatives whose permanent place of residence is Canada.

Since the first Josie Gould Scholarships were awarded in 2002, the UNW has awarded approximately $400,000 in scholarships.

Congratulations to this year's scholarship winners!
