The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) has supported graduate study, literacy and the creative arts through awards and grants since its founding in 1919.
In 1921, the 12 Clubs of the Federation awarded the first CFUW Travelling Fellowship of $1000. Since then CFUW has spent more than $1,000,000 on the Fellowships, Grants and Awards that it offers annually to Canadian women for post-graduate study. The Charitable Trust, set up in 1976, receives donations and supports this program.
CFUW Clubs, individual Club members and non-members support the Trust. Bequests and memorial gifts of both cash and stock also increase Trust funds. The Trust is a registered charity and issues receipts for income tax purposes.
