Quebec City Women’s Club Bursaries
Financial Support Provided by the Quebec City Women’s Club
The Quebec City Women’s Club is a group of women who understand that to be educated is not only a form of development, but also the means to bring leadership and creativity to one’s domain in contemporary society. The club provides financial support to outstanding women from the greater Quebec City region, who are comfortable in English, to pursue their education.
Awards and bursaries have been the principal activity of the group for over seventy years. Until 2018, the principal source of financing for the funds that were distributed was a local annual book fair organized by the women of the club. To ensure distribution for future years, these funds are managed sustainably under the auspices of the Citadel Foundation in collaboration with the bursary committee.
The club currently finances awards at St. Lawrence College and the Eastern Quebec Learning Centre. It also provides bursaries to deserving applicants who are continuing their education at university, in undergraduate or graduate programs. In 2020, the club is offering one $2,000 bursary. Bursary committee members understand that it takes hard work and dedication to continue one’s education. We see the Quebec City Women’s Club bursary as a way to acknowledge this important journey in a woman’s life.
