Overview:

The Saskatoon club of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) was formed in 1918 by fifteen university graduates. One of the mandates of the CFUW is to empower women and girls, particularly through education. From its early inception, scholarship awards and loans to help students in need were a focus of the Saskatoon club. Awards are funded by generous donations from individuals and from the annual book sale operated each fall.
