For women, education is the key to gender equality, economic prosperity, better health and much more. For over a century, based on this belief, the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) has played an important and active role advocating for women’s rights and leadership in all spheres of society. CFUW’s work, advancing women’s education, ensures that future women leaders are financially supported through their awards and fellowships. These fellowships and awards fund a range of graduate studies.
