Scholarships & Bursaries

Celebrating over 50 Years of Supporting Students!

The Trust Fund for Education, (TFE) was established in 1970 as a charitable organization registered with the Canada Revenue Agency. It was established by the membership of The University Women’s Club of Vancouver to support women’s education. We help those who are marginalized gain a voice and equal standing through further education. The Trustees value all diversity including race, gender, cultural background and areas of endeavour. We honour excellence and leadership.

The Board of Trustees administers the UWCV Trust Fund for Education which funds scholarships, bursaries and endowments through nine accredited post-secondary public education institutions in Greater Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

Bursaries and scholarships are made possible by donations, bequests or memorials and interest derived from existing funds. Tax receipts are issued to donors.

The individual institutions select the candidates to receive the awards and manage all endowment funds given to them. Members can find further information on the endowed and annual awards in their Members Directory.
