Donate to the Scholarship Fund

The scholarship program supports young women of Orillia who plan to pursue post-secondary education. Since 1974 we have awarded $318,275 in scholarships to 711 young women pursuing post-secondary education. The application process considers academic achievements as well as community and school involvement.


In June 2021, $15,000 was awarded to 26 female students from three Orillia Secondary schools and the Learning Centre. These scholarships ranged from $450 to $1,100. The deserving students met the CFUW Orillia criteria of Academic Ability, Integrity, Love of Learning, Leadership, and School and Community Involvement. We wish these amazing young women every success in the future.

All money that is donated to the CFUW Orillia Scholarship Fund goes directly to providing scholarships for young women in the Orillia area who are pursuing post-secondary education.
