In its earliest days, the Kanata branch of Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW/Kanata ) established a Scholarship Trust Fund for students pursuing post-secondary education. In 2006, the fund became an officially registered charity, CFUW/Kanata Scholarship Trust.
The Trustees and CFUW/Kanata members are passionate about education and are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of worthy students and on society at large. The Scholarship Trust is largely supported by fundraising by the club members, donations from individual members and non-members, and memorial gifts. The Trustees offer heartfelt thanks to all those generous donors for their contributions, both monetary and valuable fundraising efforts, and for believing in the charity’s educational goals. Together, we are making a significant difference in the academic careers of our youth.
The Scholarship Awards
CFUW/K Scholarship Trust currently awards scholarships of $1,000 each to female graduates of local high schools who will be attending a Canadian university or a provincially-funded college.
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of CFUW across Canada, 1919-2019, special $1,000 scholarships were also awarded to each of five indigenous post-secondary students.
