BDM Scholarship helps UFCW 247 member focus on school

Krista Buder is one of eighteen winners of the UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship. Currently enrolled in the Kinesiology program at the University of British Columbia's Okanagan Campus, Krista is a proud UFCW 247 member who works at Real Canadian Superstore.

Sister Buder had the following to say about winning a UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship:

"Thank you so much for awarding me this scholarship! I hope to eventually complete a masters in physiotherapy, and the aid provided by the BDM scholarship is enabling me to focus on school, rather than stressing about money to pay for my tuition. I have another two years left until I finish my undergraduate degree, and the generosity of this scholarship is greatly appreciated. Thank you, UFCW Canada!”

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.
