Interested in learning more about us?
As part of its mandate to encourage higher education for women, CFUW Aurora/Newmarket is committed to providing awards to students graduating from high schools in northern York Region who plan to pursue post-secondary education.
In addition to these awards, in 2012 a matching grant from the government provided the funds to establish the Barbara Langstaff award at York University in honour of one of the founding members of our Club. It is awarded each year to a mature student who is continuing her education.
In 2015 we introduced an award for a young woman who has been a ward of the Children's Aid Society going on to higher education.
The Charitable Trust of the CFUW Aurora/Newmarket was established in 2016 and now administers all the scholastic awards for our Club.
For information about the awards and how to apply please visit the Trust’s website.
