Two young women who graduated from Comox Valley secondary schools received $1,000 bursaries from the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) at the club’s June luncheon recently. Corrina Parent is attending the University of Victoria working toward a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Psychology and a minor in Business. Christine Stevenson attends Simon Fraser University and is working toward a Bachelor of Environmental Science (Biology) degree.

CFUW Comox Valley has been awarding bursaries for 28 years and has helped 45 women since 1985 to complete post-secondary education. The club has also supported the North Island College Foundation through which 10 more women have been helped in recent years.

CFUW Comox Valley is a non-profit, non-partisan club of women that promotes the education of women, stimulates the interest of members in public affairs and affords an opportunity for united opinion and action.
