Financial Support

Networking, socializing, presenting, and connecting with your Canadian collegues are a number of reasons why students are excited to meet up annually at the CAPS-ACEAU Conference. However, because the event changes from province to province, travel and its costs are always on the back of each students mind. The good news is that there are a number of funds/grants/sources to assist you in coming to present your work at the conference. Finding these sources is not always easy, but we’ve compiled a list of various grants available for each school. We hope to see you there!
