University Scholarships
CFUW/Calgary has a long-standing history of funding scholarships and bursaries at the University of Calgary. Each year donations, investment interest, and proceeds from the annual Scholarship Luncheon fund these awards which are paid annually to selected students who meet award criteria. The club operates a charitable trust, registered with Canada Revenue Agency, and issues tax-deductible receipts.

CFUW/Calgary members have approved motions to endow scholarships and bursaries at the University of Calgary. As each award is endowed, the University manages the investments and grants the awards to students according to the terms of the endowment agreement with CFUW/Calgary. Please refer to the website of the U of C Office of Student Awards for application information.

As well, CFUW Calgary manages a family sponsored award at the University of Alberta: CFUW Margaret and Walter Lindley Francophone Experience Award.
