Through our registered charitable trust, CFUW Peterborough offers several scholarships and awards for deserving local female students. Every year, at each secondary school in Peterborough, we present an Olive Langley award to a graduating female student.
At Trent University, we sponsor two awards for female students - one for an undergraduate student and one for a graduate student. We also present a bursary for a female student attending Fleming College,
All of our Scholarships and Awards are administered by the schools themselves. Interested applicants should contact the appropriate school administrator for more information on these awards.
Our Awards fund also supports the Education Program at the Art Gallery of Peterborough, the regional Science Fair, and the Kiwanis Music Festival.
