Travel Grants for Continuing Education

CSHP Members and Student Pharmacist Supporters can apply for grants to support research, education, and travel. 

The research and education grants are offered by the CSHP Foundation, while the travel grant is administered by CSHP.

Sponsored by Fresenius Kabi Canada

Objective

To provide supplementary funding that will enable CSHP Members and Student Pharmacist Supporters in each branch who receive the grant to attend conferences and educational events of relevance to their pharmacy practice.

Criteria

To be eligible, each candidate must:

  1. Be a Member or Student Pharmacist Supporter of CSHP
  2. Attend an education event 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.

The Continuing Education Travel Grant program consists of a grant of $22,000 which is divided among each of the CSHP’s branches as follows: $2000 per branch, except for Ontario which receives $6000.

Procedure

1.  All CSHP branches will advertise and administer the Continuing Education Travel Grant program annually within their respective branches.

2. Each branch will determine the specific criteria for awarding the grant funds and the value of each grant awarded.

3. Grant funds are to be paid to the winners upon submission of receipts for registration and/or other costs incurred to attend a pharmacy-related education event.

4. By November 1 of each year all branches will forward to the CSHP office the following information for the current year’s Continuing Education Travel Grant program: 

  • Name(s) of the winner(s)
  • Dollar amount of the grant awarded to each winner
  • The conference or educational event attended or planned to attend. 

5. The CSHP office will compile this information into a report to be forwarded to Fresenius Kabi Canada by the end of November each year.

6. Fresenius Kabi Canada’s support of this grant program will be recognized by CSHP: all branches will acknowledge the Continuing Education Travel Grant and its recipients in their respective newsletters. CSHP will recognize the grant recipients in an April edition of the e-bulletin and will include the total value of this award in determining the sponsorship level of Fresenius Kabi Canada for recognition as a CSHP sponsor.

7. Fresenius Kabi Canada will confirm their commitment to the Continuing Education Travel Grant program by April 1 of each year.

8. Upon receipt of the funds from Fresenius Kabi Canada, the CSHP office will distribute the grant money to the branch accounts. Once the winner is determined, please forward the information to Pamela Saunders (psaunders@cshp.ca). When claims have been received, please send all receipts and reimbursement requests to the CSHP office so that a cheque can be issued to the grant recipients from the branch’s account.

Important: Grant money should be claimed by December 31, 2018.
