Perseverance Prize (CSQ) - Excellence in Science

For those who never gave up

The Centrale des syndicats du Québec (CSQ) awards a prize of $2000 to a student who has shown the most perseverance in training for a traditionally male-dominated occupation.

This award recognizes perseverance in the achievement of career goals. (Note that it is not designed to reward those who have overcome physical or social handicaps). Candidates must demonstrate their perseverance by describing what they had to do to overcome the obstacles related to the chosen traditionally male-dominated occupation.


In addition to the answers to the compulsory questions, the candidate’s application package must include the answers to the following questions (a maximum of one page):

  1. What obstacles did you encounter and how did you overcome them?
  2. How did you motivate yourself to persevere in pursuing your career goals? Describe your experience.
