The Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Saint John is a women’s organization that was established in 1924. The club is active in public affairs, working to raise the social, economic and legal status of women, as well as to improve education, the environment, peace, justice and human rights.
The Greater Saint John Community Foundation Board members and the Canadian Federation of University Women-Saint John celebrated local philanthropy and education on March 15, 2007. By donating $64,000 to The Greater Saint John Community Foundation, a new permanently endowed fund has been created by CFUW-Saint John. It will annually support three scholarships for women from the Saint John area who are or will be enrolled as full-time university students.
The scholarships are:
- CFUW-Saint John Entrance Scholarship $1,000
- Jean Flemming Memorial Scholarship for Mature Students $1,500
- Lillian D. and Charles R. Bone Memorial Scholarship for Post-Graduate Study $1,500
