CFUW Orillia Scholarship Send-Off!

CFUW Orillia has started a new tradition, a summer Scholarship Send-Off. This joint initiative of our Membership Committee & Education Foundation invites scholarship winners, their families and mentors to an outdoor social gathering. The August 2023 Send-off celebrated the significant accomplishment of our 22 CFUW scholarship winners with 16 students, two winners from 2022 as ‘alumni’, nine CFUW Orillia Members and over 45 guests in attendance.

The message given to the young women was one of best wishes for a successful journey as they begin a new and exciting adventure called post-secondary education. All guests learned about CFUW Orillia, Ontario Council & CFUW National as prior to the winners’ scholarships, few had heard about CFUW Orillia. Many of the mothers, grandmothers and mentors expressed interest in CFUW Orillia. Attended by members of both CFUW Orillia boards there was plenty of time for mixing and mingling. As one board member said “it’s definitely a highlight having an opportunity to talk individually to the scholarship winners.” Since 1974, CFUW Orillia has awarded $403,975 in scholarships to 749 women to pursuing post-secondary education.
