Reminder: Ian MacPherson Legacy Fund for Students

This is a reminder that the Ian MacPherson Legacy Fund is accepting applications for funding throughout 2015 to cover student costs associated with learning opportunities such as co-operative association or sector conferences, training events on co-operatives and research activities or participation in events related to the co-operative economy.

Students at post-secondary institutions who are 35 years or younger will be given priority, with a preference for those doing co-operative research and/or education. Priority will be given to applicants who have an active role in an event (those presenting). Applications will be accepted throughout the year and are reviewed periodically. Approval times are subject to the availability of the evaluation committee. It is suggested that you submit your application at least 60 days in advance of an event for which you are seeking financial support to attend.

To apply, visit Co-operative and Mutuals Canada‘s website and fill out the application form.
