CFUW-Northumberland Scholarships and Bursaries

Our prime focus is to promote high standards of public education, as well as to facilitate advanced study and research by women in Northumberland County.  Throuh the funding of scholarships and bursaries, we seek to encourage and enable women in our community to attend colleges and universities.   

In 2019, we awarded six scholarships to graduates of local high schools to go to McMaster, Brock, Queens, Carleton and Ottawa Universities; and Sir Sandford Fleming College.  We also awarded two bursaries for students already enrolled in programs at Trent University and Sir Sandford Fleming College. This year, in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of CWUW, we awarded a one-time award to a First Nations, Métis, or Innuit student 

 Funds for these scholarships and bursaries are raised through member contributions and the annual Scholarship Luncheon.  


“In receiving the CFUW Northumberland award, it meant that I could proceed to university and continue my education with no debt. I was honoured to have been the recipient of this award coming from such strong women in the community.”
“If it wasn’t for organizations such as the CFUW, I would not have been likely to fund my post-secondary studies. The fact that I am a first-generation post-secondary graduate within my family is such an accomplishment and an amazing feeling.”
“This award was, and remains, very important to me as scholarships such as yours allowed me to take advantage of every opportunity university life had to offer.”
