BDM Scholarship makes education more affordable for MBA student

UFCW 247 member Sai Tejaswini Vemuganti is one of the latest recipients of the UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship award.

A UFCW 247 member at Metrotown Superstore, Vemuganti is currently in her second year of an MBA program at University Canada West in Vancouver. She aspires to enter the banking and finance sector after graduation.

“As a full-time student, I have been facing financial challenges due to the skyrocketing costs of living in the city,” says Vemuganti. “Thanks to the BDM scholarship, I can finally sign up for the financial services certification and enhance my knowledge. I am extremely grateful for being selected and for getting an opportunity to advance my career!”
