Through collective bargaining, CUPE 4163 and the University of Victoria have created a conference fund to support CUPE 4163 Component 1 members in their professional and/or academic pursuits.
The grant supports attendance at academic or research conferences and workshops but not course related travel. Grants are to a maximum of $250 and allotted on a first come first served basis to the maximum number available for the month of conference attendance.
The fund is available as of March 1, 2013.
