OUR PROGRAM

SCHOLARSHIPS

 & BURSARIES 

Each year, the CIP/ICU Planning Student Trust Fund (CIP-PSTF) offers scholarships and bursaries to CIP student members who are enrolled full-time in accredited Canadian planning programs. In Canada, programs are accredited by the Professional Standards Board for the Planning Profession in Canada (PSB) and l’Ordre des urbanistes du Québec (OUQ).

 

Are you in an accredited planning program but not yet a CIP student member? That’s easy to fix – and you’re eligible for a FREE CIP membership! Visit the CIP website to learn more.

The next application period for scholarships and bursaries will start on January 4, 2021.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships are awarded for student projects that best demonstrate excellence and a potential contribution to the planning profession (in theory or practice), or a potential service to a community or community group.

 

 

ELIGIBILITY

A student must be:

  • A student member of the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) in good standing for the current academic year. Professional (MCIP®) and candidate members who have returned to school are not eligible for scholarships.

  • Enrolled full-time in an accredited Canadian planning program (accredited by PSB or OUQ) during the term of the awarding of the scholarship.

The project (e.g. thesis, practicum, major research paper, etc.) must be:

  • Proposed or in progress at the time of application with a target completion date within the current school year. Scholarships will not be awarded for any projects already completed.

The required application components include:

  • Current résumé, demonstrating the applicant’s past and present commitments to their community

  • One-page description of the project submitted for consideration

  • Additional documents as may be specified for each scholarship

Projects will be judged on the basis of their potential contribution to the planning profession (in theory or practice), or their potential service to a community or community group.

Scholarship recipients must agree to submit a copy of their project to CIP-PSTF upon completion and must consent to having the work published in whole or in part by CIP-PSTF and/or CIP.

 

JURIES

The work of CIP-PSTF would not be possible without the dedication of its volunteers.

CIP-PSTF’s juries review students’ submissions, verify that the eligibility criteria have been met, and select the recommended recipients of the CIP-PSTF scholarships and bursaries. The CIP-PSTF Board of Directors provides final approval of the recipients through a resolution of the Board at a Board meeting.

CIP-PSTF recognizes the time and effort that its jurors provide each year to review and rate the many applications received for scholarships and bursaries.
