History of the Scholarship

How It All Started

CHFT founded our diversity scholarship in 2004. It has awarded over 380 scholarships in our membership area.  We have partnered with regional federations and CHF Canada to distribute over 110 additional scholarships. Together with our partners we have awarded over two million dollars in scholarships to people in nine areas of Canada.

The program is for people living in CHFT member housing co-ops. An important element of the scholarship is the strong commitment to diversity shown by the applicants in their communities. Students are awarded their scholarships largely based on their community involvement in their schools, co-op communities and in a variety of community based organizations. To date people from over 114 co-ops have won scholarships.
