At the quadrennial meeting of the BLET UPSR GCA in May 2016, one of the items of business approved by the GCA Delegates in session, was the formation of the UPSR GCA Scholarship Program.
There are some membership requirements to take note of, and are listed below:
In order for their son, daughter or financial dependent (as defined herein) to be scholarship eligible, a member must be 1) current on dues; 2) have maintained continuous membership in a BLET Local Division(s) represented by the BLET UPSR GCA for a period of no less than two (2) years immediately preceding the deadline date for submission of scholarship application; and 3) maintain such membership relationship through and including the entirety of the period between scholarship submission and the end of the academic year to which the scholarship applies. Periodically, an inquiry will be made to verify the concerned member’s status with their Local Division. Any member failing to maintain membership pursuant to the foregoing will result in forfeiture of any scholarship awarded to their son, daughter or financial dependent and will be required promptly to remit to the GCA the moneys received or be subject to legal action to recover same.
Because of the belated approval of our Bylaws, the deadline for this year's applications will be March 31, 2017, not March 1st.
