In support of CFUW's objective of promoting education, the CFUW Burlington Scholarship Foundation gives a number of scholarships annually to young women in our community pursuing a post-secondary education.

Each year, young women who have achieved high marks as well as having assumed a strong leadership position in her school are selected to receive a Leadership Award.  In 2014, the CFUW Burlington Scholarship Foundation will grant $12,000 in awards  -- nine Leadership Awards as well as three Achievement Awards of $1,000 each.

Money for these awards comes from members' fees, contributions from individual members and interest groups, as well as special event fundraisers like our author's event and annual book sale.

CFUW Burlington also supports the CFUW Charitable Trust which grants Fellowships and Awards annually.  The combined amount of the awards granted by the individual CFUW clubs nationally and the Charitable Trust totals almost $1,000,000 annually.
