Annual Scholarship Fundraiser
In an upbeat and inspirational evening, Gina Cody will introduce us to her "Three Stages of Life". The first stage is where you are taught and nurtured by your parents, teachers and your environment. The second stage is when you forge your own path, and when you pursue your own personal and professional goals and ambitions. The third and final stage is when you can give back and help those coming after you. During her talk, she will discuss her own journey through these stages and some of the lessons she has learned and challenges she has faced. The Montreal Lakeshore University Women's Club (MLUWC) Scholarship Fund encourages education and life-long learning by awarding scholarships and bursaries to qualified and deserving West Island women.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the MLUWC Scholarship Fund which awards $12,000 annually to West Island women pursuing their education in Quebec. In addition to 4 scholarships for university students, we are proud to provide 17 bursaries to students from John Abbott College, Place Cartier Adult Education Centre and Centre d’éducation des adultes Jeanne Sauvé. In a year when our usual fundraising events have been disrupted, your support of this virtual event is most appreciated.
