The Canadian Home Economics Foundation currently holds a General Fund in addition to several specially designated funds. Donations to this major fund support a variety of projects in home economics research, education and public service.
Offers prizes in an annual writing competition open to senior undergraduate students, and those in graduate studies, in home economics and related programs at Canadian universities, for the best original papers reviewing recent research or new developments in one of the areas within home economics.
Deadline: November 1, 2020 at midnight
(NB: Deadline extended due to COVID-19)
Graduate students registered in a Master or Doctoral program in the field of Home Economics/Human Ecology may apply. This initiative for this award comes from the recognition of underfunding of graduate students in general, and Home Economics/Human Ecology fields, specifically. Preference will be given to students who have an undergraduate degree in a Home Economics/Human Ecology field.

Held separately from the General Fund, these funds were initiated by associations or individuals to pay tribute to a home economist, or to support a specific project area.
