The What & How of our Education Awards
How do I apply?
The deadline for applying for an education award in 2023 is Friday, April 28 at 5:00 pm
CFUW Perth and District reaches out to local high schools and training institutions in March to share the application form and any updates, but
individuals are also invited to apply directly using the information below.
Applicants must reside within the Perth and District region and priority is given to applicants who demonstrate financial need. Individuals who have received rewards in the past are invited to apply again if they need
financial help to continue their studies.
Applicants are required to submit
a completed application form, (available here in 2023)
a letter of acceptance to a public college or university
a copy of your OSAP estimate of award from this site: https://osap.gov.on.ca/AidEstimator1920Web/enterapp/enter.xhtml
a covering letter, explaining your career goals and the reasons why you should be considered for an award
two letters of reference that include contact information for the referees, on letterhead where possible
If possible, these documents should be submitted as one PDF file and sent to: email@example.com by the deadline.
A committee made up of CFUW members reviews the applications and contacts successful applicants three weeks after the deadline. Award winners are invited to meet with CFUW members at a reception to celebrate their success.
Members of CFUW Perth and District and their immediate families may not apply for these awards.
