In June 2020 the Trust awarded 3 Secondary School Scholarships; 4 Memorial Scholarships; 2 Post Graduate Scholarships; 2 Return to School Bursaries and 2 Early Childhood Education Awards.
June 2020 also included for the first time a new Red Seal Apprenticeship Award with funds received from a private donor. The Trust also administers the JC Reid Memorial Scholarship on behalf of the Reid family, and as of 2018, North Island College administers an award on our behalf for a local woman continuing her studies in a Red Seal programme.
All recipients of all awards have been local women. Since 1985 the Trust has awarded over a quarter of a million dollars.
The Trust has 8 trustees, each elected for a 4 year term from among the membership of CFUW PQ. They are responsible for establishing the number and criteria for the awards, publicizing them, selecting the winners, managing the finances of the Trust and reporting to both CFUW PQ and Canada Revenue Agency. Funds come from individual donors (mainly members of CFUW P-Q), an annual CFUW PQ grant, Thrifty Smile Card Programme and from 100+ Women Who Care Oceanside.
