Applications are now being accepted for four CWA|SCA Canada Memorial Scholarships for those enrolled in post-secondary education or training.
The scholarships are open to current members of the Canadian Media Guild, their children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews. The deadline for applications is March 23, 2012.
The four awards of $1,000 each were created by CWA|SCA Canada to honour the work and lives of John Belcarz and Dan Zeidler, who made substantial contributions to our union and its members. John served for many years on the Executive Committee of the Montreal Newspaper Guild and was its President when he passed away in 2003. Dan was an officer in the Guild at the CBC before becoming a Guild International staff representative in 1991. When the Guild in Canada became an autonomous organization in 1995, Dan became its western Canadian staff representative. He passed away in 2007.
