Awards Committee Role
The Awards Committee is a dedicated group of volunteers who really care about the education of women. This group ensures that the guidelines set out by the Trust are used effectively to provide scholarships to the most deserving candidates.
This committee liaises with secondary schools in Kanata and Stittsville, and informs guidance counsellors of what we can offer in scholarships and how they can be obtained. Guidance counsellors receive the application forms and the application guidelines. Students interested in these scholarships should contact their guidance counsellor to get an application form.
Students send their completed application forms and reference letters to the CFUW Kanata Awards Committee who then review and evaluate the applications, and select a recipient for each school. This procedure is in compliance with CRA guidelines.
Selected students are approved by the Scholarship Trust who write a cheque made out to the school the student will attend. The amount will be applied to tuition fees directly by the school.
In normal years (non COVID) the Committee arranges for a representative from our club to present the award to the winner at the annual graduation ceremony. Also, in the past the Committee has organized a tea for winners and parents.
