CFUW DR. Margaret McWilliams Pre-Doctoral Fellowship, Canada

CFUW DR. Margaret McWilliams Pre-Doctoral Fellowship

On August 26, 1919 University Women’s Clubs from Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton and Victoria met in Winnipeg for the inaugural meeting of the “Federation of University Women in Canada.” Dr. Winifred Cullis of the United Kingdom had urged immediate formation of a National Federation so that Canada could become one of the founding members of the newly proposed International Federation of University Women ( IFUW ) in 1919.

Dr. Virginia Gildersleeve of the United States had reinforced this idea and had offered the alternative of joining the American Association of University Women ( AAUW ). The Canadians attended the first IFUW meeting in 1920 as the Canadian Federation of University Women, a charter affiliate committed to encouraging international understanding and peace.

One-time award of CAN$11,000 open to Canadian women or permanent residents in Canada. Applicant must have completed at least one calendar year in a full-time doctoral program and be enrolled in full-time doctoral studies in Canada or abroad at time of application.
