Both our North Shore CFUW Clubs have recently learned that their applications for funding again for Education Awards have been successful.  This means that each club can again offer awards as we have in the last few years for study at BC post-secondary institutions. The letters of thanks from recipients of these awards indicates the value in terms of monetary assistance as well as encouragement to pursue their future educational plans.

We are grateful to the Ministry of Finance through the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch that make this money available for worthwhile projects in BC.
