Amount of Scholarship
This year we will award 2 scholarships of $7,500 each.
The Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation of Canada supports Canadian women who attain the high standards of scholarship, leadership and service to their community to which our Fraternity is committed. Each year, we use the donations we receive from our committed supporters to award scholarships to Canadian women pursuing higher education.
The Past - Our Beginning
The Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation of Canada was started by a small group of alumnae in Vancouver and Toronto who were committed to philanthropy and wanted to further academic excellence for Canadian women. Since its small beginning, the Foundation has grown to be able to award scholarships of at least $15,000 in total each year, a source of great pride to the founders and to the small team of committed volunteers who manage the affairs of the Foundation today.
A registered charity, the Foundation awards scholarships to Canadian women pursing higher degrees. All applicants who meet the criteria of being a Canadian woman, who is a citizen, currently enrolled in and pursuing a PhD are considered; there is no requirement to be a member of the Fraternity. The Foundation is based in Toronto and overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors. The generosity of our committed donors has enabled us to establish an endowment that will enable the Foundation to continue to support the academic advancement of Canadian women well into the future.
Your Gift is the Key to Our Success
Donations to the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation of Canada make these scholarships possible. Your gift is the key! We welcome donations from everyone and encourage you to make a donation today. A Canadian tax receipt will be issued for all donations of $20 or more, or upon request. Donations help to ensure that scholarships can continue to be awarded for many years.
Our Scholarship Recipients
The scholarship recipients are most grateful to all Kappas and friends who believe in and recognize the value and the role that higher education brings. Support through your donation encourages the Ph.D. candidates and assists these remarkable women to achieve their goals. We thank all of you who are supporting and advancing the higher education of Canadian women.
