||CFUW-KW Margaret Dale Philp Scholarship
||This scholarship is provided by the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) K-W Charitable Fund to honour Margaret Dale Philp. Ms. Philp was a Life Member and Past President of CFUW K-W and taught Latin and English at Kitchener Collegiate Institute from 1928 to 1933. Some of her illustrious students included authors Kenneth Millar (alias, Ross MacDonald) and his wife, Margaret Millar.
In 1973, the Federation instituted the CFUW Margaret Dale Philp Fund. In 2004, a bequest from retired K-W librarian and long-time member of CFUW K-W, Kathryn Lippert, was added to this fund. This bequest was an expression of Kathryn Lippert's life-long love of books and support of literacy.
Eligible candidates are full-time, female students who have been admitted to the masters or doctoral programs in the Humanities or Social Sciences. The research project undertaken by candidates must focus on Canadian issues, which may include comparative studies between Canada and other countries.
Candidates in doctoral programs offered in conjunction with other post-secondary institutions must be registered with Wilfrid Laurier University as their "home" institution in order to be eligible for consideration for this scholarship.
Candidates may only receive this scholarship once.
