Please think about donating to the Scholarship and Bursary Trust, through either a donation or a legacy from your will.
The Trust, which is registered as a Charitable Trust with Revenue Canada, offers scholarships and bursaries to girls, boys, and women from School District 69. There is one scholarship for a graduating girl from each secondary school going on to a university program, as well as scholarships for undergraduate and postgraduate university students. The Trust also offers bursaries to local women who want to return to their education at an accredited Canadian institution, a bursary for students in Early Childhood Education programs, and an award for a woman apprentice in a Red Seal trade.
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.
In addition to the funds generated by the popular annual book sale, the Trust depends heavily on the generosity of individual donors. We are hoping that your generosity will be extended to assist the young women and men of our community reach their educational goals.
