YEU Education Bursaries

The fall of 2020 may prove to be the most unusual back-to-school we've ever experienced. At YEU, we know you have lots to consider, lots to plan, and more than a few things to worry about as you prepare for your studies this year. We hope we can help. 

YEU is proud to offer 8 Education Bursaries annually, each for $1000.  These bursaries are offered to Yukon students planning to pursue studies in an accredited post-secondary school - on campus or through online education as a result of changes due to Covid-19. To be eligible, you must either be a member of Yukon Employees’ Union or be the dependent of a YEU member. If you need information or have questions please contact us by email or call our office at 867-667-2331

Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year are now being accepted.
