Scholarship Success Story


Scholarship Recipient

Veronica works for Red River Co-op and was awarded their workplace scholarship for UFCW 832’s Education Fund scholarship program in August 2021. In her words: 

“I want to thank you for providing me with the opportunity and for helping me with my tuition! I plan on studying Geography, I chose geography because it allows me to learn more about our environment that I am very passionate about. A common misconception people have is that geography is all about maps when it encompasses so much more. In my studies, I have learned about how people form relationships with their environment, how our actions have consequences for our climate, and overall I’ve gained a greater geographic awareness. I love how it allows me to focus on how the environment can change with natural and human influences. Geography lets me learn and eventually share what I am passionate about.”
