The total disbursements from our Saanich Peninsula CFUW club for the 2016-17 and 2018-18 years was $8,500 per year!
This amount included $4000 in scholarships to the secondary schools (students completing high school at Parkland, Stellys, Claremont, and the Individual Learning Centre), $1,300 to the Carl and Audrey Mawby University of Victoria scholarship, $1900 to the Camosun College Endowment awards and $1300 to the Camosun College First Nations scholarships.
Below are the historical descriptions of the annual awards but if there are more funds available in a specific year additional monies are distributed for educational awards.
For example, in 2015-16 the Education Trust Fund trustees recommended that our club provide a further $4000 for one-time scholarships in 2015-16. The membership voted to give an additional award in Spring 2016 of $1000 for one recipient in each of the three secondary schools and $1000 to Individual Learning Centre to be distributed between one or more students at the discretion of the Principal.
Therefore the total of disbursements for the 2015-16 year was $13, 344!
This amount in 2015-16 included $8500 in scholarships to the Saanich School District secondary schools (students completing high school at Parkland, Stellys, Claremont, and the Individual Learning Centre), $1,844 to the Carl and Audrey Mawby University of Victoria scholarship, $1400 to the Camosun College Endowment awards and $1600 to the Camosun College First Nations scholarships.
