2021 AAPS Education Awards are Open

Each year, AAPS offers 15 awards of up to $1,000 each in memory of Rick Byers who served on the AAPS Board in 2009. Apart from his service on the Board, Rick was also a key participant on AAPS' Income Replacement Plan Working Committee. Rick's work on this committee was informed by his many years of experience in worker rehabilitation. His knowledge, empathy, and understanding assisted the committee in adopting a new Disability Benefits Plan.

Supporting members and their families to continue their education is an important historic part of labour relations organizations, and it is particularly meaningful to AAPS members working at UBC. Established by the AAPS Board in 2019, the AAPS Education Awards replaces the previous AAPS Scholarships Program. The new program will be more accessible to more members and their families.

The awards are open to all AAPS Members, spouses/common-law partners, and dependent children enrolled in at least one course between September 2021-August 2022.

The 2021 AAPS Education Awards are open for submission until October 3, 2021. Winners will be announced at the AAPS Annual General Meeting.
