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.

Year two scholarships are awarded at Red River College provided there are available scholarship funds.

Red River College students registered in the Culinary Arts program are automatically considered for the Westland-Carbone Culinary Arts scholarship.

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 through 12, in eligible inner-Winnipeg schools, becomes a credit toward a WFEF Scholarship.

For the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg, 80% and higher marks are credited.

UManitoba applicants 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.
