CFUW - Canadian Federation of University Women Saskatoon Inc.

Description: The Saskatoon club of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) was formed in 1918 by fifteen university graduates. One of the mandates of the CFUW is to empower women and girls, particularly through education. From its early inception, scholarship awards and loans to help students in need were a focus of the Saskatoon club. Awards are funded by generous donations from individuals and from the annual book sale operated each fall.
There are six graduate scholarships awarded by CFUW Saskatoon Inc.
  • $1,750 each for Dr. Jean Murray Memorial, Dorothea Friebel, Bennee, CFUW Saskatoon Inc., and Jacqueline McKenzie Newstead Scholarships
  • $5,000 for Newstead Doctoral Scholarship
  • Eligibility: These awards are directed towards women completing their degrees. They will be awarded to female graduate students who are not recipients of any other substantial scholarship(s). The students must have completed at least one year of course work and have an approved thesis or project proposal.
