Bursaries & Scholarships

Occasionally CAGP and other organizations offer bursaries, grants or scholarships to those working within the gift planning/fundraising sector that can be used to support those with tight budgets to access education and professional development. Visit this page regularly to see what opportunities are currently available.

CAGP Conference Bursaries

Many of the CAGP Chapters offer bursaries to members, allowing them the opportunity to attend the Conference when they might otherwise not have the financial means to do so. The intent of the CAGP bursary program is to provide opportunities for development professionals to go to the CAGP National Conference who would otherwise not be able to attend. We offer two kinds of bursaries: Bursaries sponsored by Chapters (for members); and BIPOC bursaries (for members and non-members). 

Visit the CAGP Conference website to see the qualifications, terms & conditions and to apply for a bursary.
