Award Process:

  • The Awards Committee will review all applications received by the deadline, taking into consideration the actual need, the length of the program, the year of study, efforts to minimize costs, personal statement of special circumstances, grades, etc. All decisions are final and are conveyed in writing.
  • If a Foundation award is approved, it is disbursed during the course of the program. Cheques are forwarded to the recipient’s credit union or credit union nearest to the institute of learning or place of residence. This enables the monitoring of the application and disbursement of the award, and it provides the credit union concerned with an opportunity to receive recognition concerning the award.
  • We ask that you attend in person for a photographic presentation which may be used in the
    Foundation’s newsletter or the website’s Blog as this is a means of showing the donors their contributions are at work.  If you cannot attend, please email us.

As required by Revenue Canada, a T4A will be issued the following spring for income tax purposes.  It is the responsibility of the recipient to advise CUFBC of any address changes.
