Scholarship

Westland Foundation Education Fund (WFEF) Scholarships are available toward first-year tuition fees at Red River College, the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg.

Who is eligible

Graduates from inner-Winnipeg high schools, who are registering at Red River College, the University of Manitoba, and the University of Winnipeg, are eligible to apply.

Check out our list of inner-Winnipeg high schools.

How it works

For Red River College, every 70% and higher mark earned at the end of each year from Grades 7 to 12 inner-Winnipeg schools becomes a credit toward a WFEF Scholarship.

Year two WFEF Scholarships are awarded at Red River College, provided there are remaining scholarship funds. Students have to achieve a minimum of 3.0 GPA from their first year of studies and continue with their original program for their second year of studies to receive this year two scholarship. 

**Annually, the Westland-Carbone Culinary Arts Scholarship is provided automatically to top three WFEF Scholars who are registered in Red River College Culinary Arts program. 

**We apologize for the inconvenience. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to raise funds for the 2020-2021 Carbone scholarship. Please check back in the summer of 2021 for any updates.

 

For the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg, every 80% and higher mark earned at the end of each year from Grades 7 to 12 inner-Winnipeg schools is credited.

Students that are eligible for the WFEF Scholarship toward the University of Manitoba will receive their scholarships provided they are registered in 24 credit hours.

 

The WFEF Scholarship is available to students for up to 30 months from the date of their Grade 12 graduation.
