Our Bursary Fund was established with a Mandate to:
Support a Durham woman with focus but lacking resources to establish herself in the business and professional community, be it through education, training or support.

In the past, the Bursary has provided women financial assistance to:

  • Obtain post-secondary degrees diplomas, and/or certification,
  • Obtain work readiness skills enabling them to leave social assistance and gain financial independence.

We also fund scholarships and bursaries administered by Durham College, UOIT, and Trillium College. Students are recommended to the BPW Bursary Fund after they have exhausted all other avenues of funding. Our Bursary provides emergency funds to assist the student to continue her post- secondary education.

Thank you for helping us continue our support!
