The mission of the Lea Roback Foundation is to promote education as a means of self-fulfilment and emancipation for all, as well as to provide financial assistance to women who are economically disadvantaged and active in their community, and who wish to pursue their education.

Every year, the Foundation awards scholarships of a maximum value of $3,500 each. These are available to women only. 

The eligibility criteria are in line with the spirit and notion of perpetuating the ideals cherished by Lea Roback, as a trade unionist and a feminist.

The candidate seeking a Foundation scholarship must thus:

  • pursue studies at any level from literacy up to the completion of an undergraduate degree;
    • not have a university undergraduate degree that is recognized in the Province of Quebec: Applicants studying for a second undergraduate degree, a master's degree or a doctorate are not eligible.
  • require financial assistance;
  • be socially committed in their community;  
  • pursue studies geared towards improving their condition in life and that of their milieu;
  • live in the Province of Québec and be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident (immigrant) or a refugee;  
  • not have a university undergraduate degree that is recognized in the Province of Quebec.

In addition to its regular scholarships, in 2012, the Foundation created two new specific scholarships to honour the memory of two great friends of the Foundation.

The Madeleine Parent Scholarship will be awarded to a candidate who is pursuing her studies in sociology, political science or industrial relations. 

The Hélène Pedneault Scholarship will be awarded to a candidate whose academic interests lie in literature, theatre, feminist studies, journalism, communication or environment studies. 

Each of these $2000 scholarships could be in addition to or not, whichever is applicable, a scholarship that is awarded by the Foundation in accordance with its customary rules.
