Halifax – January 20, 2021 – Pratik Patel is one of eighteen winners of the UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship. Currently studying Massage Therapy at Eastern College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Pratik is a proud member of UFCW Local 864.
Brother Pratik had the following to say about winning a UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship:
“I feel lucky to have been helped by the Union in this way! My field of study is offering a bright future but until my studies are completed, I struggle to meet my all needs and it is difficult managing work and school. Being a full-time student during a pandemic is challenging, as expenses and school fees mount. But this scholarship has lifted me up, like adding feathers to wings. Thanks to UFCW Canada, I feel confident soaring towards my dreams!”
The UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship offers a total of $18,000 in scholarships to UFCW Canada members and their families and is one of more than 25 union scholarships available to members and their families every year, totaling more than $300,000 in support.
