Now accepting scholarship applications

Mar 04, 2014

The Kiwanis International Foundation is thrilled to offer our 2014 scholarship opportunities through the Linda Canaday Memorial Scholarship and the Cunat International Scholarship programs.

Our foundation extends tremendous gratitude to the Cunat and Canaday families for their steadfast dedication to the Kiwanis family, education and service to the community which makes these scholarships possible.

While serving as 1992-93 governor of the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District, Brian Cunat and his wife, Miki, established the Cunat International Scholarship to recognize and support Kiwanis-family members who are setting out to make a difference in people’s lives as they work their way through school. The Cunats believe in setting goals, staying the course and accomplishing goals. Life goals should be not only self-serving, but include the concept of helping others and making the world a better place for all. While serving as 2001-02 Kiwanis International President, Brian and First Lady Miki expanded the scholarship program to include other parts of the world. Their beliefs that our future is in the hands of youth, motivates them to fund these scholarships.

The Linda Canaday Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of Kiwanian and 2008-09 First Lady Linda Canaday, a former teacher and long time Kiwanis member. In her memory, a scholarship opportunity was established for Key Club International members. This scholarship is in honor of Linda’s love of children, which she demonstrated through her teaching and her committed and caring compassion for children through Kiwanis.
