Each year the Heritage Fund awards scholarships to female students who have been recommended by their educational institutions based on financial need and the likelihood of success. These students are then reviewed and selected by the Scholarship Sub-committee of the Heritage Fund.The amount of the scholarships can vary from year to year depending on the funds received from the University Women’s Club of Toronto, plus raised through fundraising endeavors.

2) Apprenticeship – 4 awards of $1,500 each
3) University – 8 awards of $2,000 each
