The 30 students with the highest level of debt will each receive a cheque for $1000 … thus 30 drops will be taken out of the ‘bucket of student debt’ that currently exists in our province.
The winners will be announced by April 10, 2017, and a spreadsheet will be published that gives a debt total for all who entered the contest (see application form for the details about the information to be published online).
The University of the Fraser Valley Faculty and Staff Association (UFVFSA) is sponsoring this contest through union dues paid by 1200 members, in collaboration with our provincial affiliate the Federation of Post Secondary Educators (FPSE).
Our provincial affiliate, FPSE, has been trying to ‘open the doors’ to discuss funding for the post-secondary sector. Want to know more? … check out this link: advocacy for the post-secondary sector in BC
