Each year in BC, CFUW Clubs present $225 000 in scholarships and bursaries.
Since its inception, in 1953, CFUW Abbotsford has supported the education of women. In our early years, scholarships were presented to our local high schools. With the addition of the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) in the community of Abbotsford, CFUW Abbotsford has donated scholarships to mature female students who are enrolled in full-time post secondary education. We currently donate an annual scholarship of $1500.
Our Endowment Fund at UFV now stands at $80 000. Over the years we have held a variety of fund raisers to support our goal of educating women. These past few years we have held an annual "Unfundraiser" where members make a donation to the Endowment Fund and receive a tax receipt. Our hope is to continue to grow our fund so that one day we may be able to offer two $1500 scholarships at UFV.
