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 trade or certificate programme.
All recipients of all awards are from the local area. 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 the Canada Revenue Agency.
Funds come from individual donors (mainly members of CFUW-PQ), an annual CFUW PQ grant and in previous years have also come from the Thrifty Smile Card Programme and from 100+ Women Who
