The Canadian Federation of University Women- Northumberland (CFUW-N), founded in 1991, promotes education and advocacy for women and girls. Membership is open to all women who value lifelong learning. Over the past 30 years, CFUW-N has, through annual scholarships and bursaries, supported girls and women on their educational journeys. Every year we hold fundraisers to promote our work and add to our scholarship trust fund.
CFUW-N works with the six Northumberland County high schools, the Children’s Foundation, the First People’s House of Learning, Fleming College and Trent University, to identify women who will benefit from financial support as they pursue their education.
The May 2020 fundraiser was postponed due to Covid-19. A virtual presentation, with guest speaker Dr. Brian Goldman, was held in November.
Over $9000 in scholarships and bursaries were awarded in 2020. CFUW-N congratulates the 2020 award recipients and wish them every success in their studies. Pictured above are some of the award recipients, after receiving their awards in the mail.
The 2021 fundraiser will b e held virtually on September 8, 2021, with guest speaker, Dr. Roberta Bondar.
