Continuing Education Travel Grant
This program is administered by the CSHP branches and sponsored by Fresenius Kabi Canada.
The Continuing Education Travel Grant provides supplementary funding that helps CSHP members in each branch who receive the grant to attend conferences and educational events of relevance to their pharmacy practice.
The 2020 grant will be available to members from May 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021. A member who fails to claim his or her grant by May 31, 2021, will forfeit the funds.
To be eligible, each candidate must:
- Be a pharmacist, pharmacy technician, or student pharmacist member of CSHP; and
- Attend an in-person educational event that is relevant to his or her pharmacy practice and for which the costs incurred to attend are not fully paid by his or her employer or by other means.
- COVID-19 Update: Until it is safe to attend in-person educational events again, the funds will be available for online courses and other alternate educational purposes, such as textbooks, educational subscriptions, etc.
