Empowering Women in Lanark County: CFUW Perth's Bursaries

Are you a woman in Lanark County with dreams of pursuing higher education? CFUW Perth is here to support you in reaching your full potential! Our bursaries are designed to provide financial assistance to women who are eager to embark on their academic journey at a publicly-funded post-secondary institution in September 2024. 

Whether you're a recent high school graduate, a professional seeking a career change, or currently enrolled in college or university, we believe in empowering women of all backgrounds to pursue their educational goals. 

Priority is given to applicants who demonstrate significant financial need, ensuring that those facing financial barriers have the opportunity to access higher education. We understand the importance of education in breaking barriers and creating opportunities for women to thrive. 

This year, we are excited to announce the introduction of the Rowena M. Barrett Award, a special $1000 bursary honouring a beloved member's mother. If you're aspiring to a career in education, this could be your chance to receive additional support for your studies.
