Women from Langley are now eligible for the Canadian Federation of Women (CFUW) $3,000 bursary handed out by the Surrey-White Rock branch.

They celebrated their 60th anniversary last year with a $10,000 Jubilee bursary plus two additional $2,500 awards.

This year, the branch is now offering three $3,000 bursaries to applicants from Langley, Surrey and White Rock.

Women pursuing further education, whether it be a university or college degree, diploma program, trade or technology, are invited to apply.

They must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident to be eligible and must be enrolled for the 2020-2021 school year.
