Perseverance Prizes (CSQ)
For those who never gave up
The Centrale des syndicats du Québec (CSQ) awards two cash prizes of $2000, one to a graduating student enrolled in vocational training and the other to a graduating student enrolled in technical training for their exceptional perseverance in learning 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.
Candidates for this prize must have completed their program of study before June 30, 2018.
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):
- What obstacles did you encounter and how did you overcome them?
- How did you motivate yourself to persevere in pursuing your career goals? Describe your experience.
