Vice: Why Are There Still Male-Only Scholarships?

March 10, 2016 — 

As Vice reports:

….Gender-based awards aren’t uncommon in colleges across Canada. A quick search reveals that most colleges have gender-designated scholarships and awards of some kind, the majority of which favor women (in 2010, The Globe and Mail reported finding 976 for women only, 192 for men)….

Some colleges, such as the University of Manitoba and the University of Alberta, have been more proactive in reexamining their scholarships, creating policy that ensures new scholarships adhere to their respective human rights codes.
