The CSHP Foundation is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for education grants in the following categories:

  • Thematic Conferences Development: organization of a targeted group that will focus on issues in pharmacy practice and/or education.
  • Educational Programs or Materials Development for Pharmacists: development of resources for pharmacists with a focus on optimizing pharmacotherapy.

The Foundation believes that shared knowledge is a powerful practice tool. As an organization, we believe dynamic opportunities for peer education are critical to continuous, positive change in both our profession and in the lives of our patients.

Eligible education proposals will reflect CSHP members’ innovative approaches to identifying or developing opportunities for professional education, dialogue, and knowledge transfer for pharmacists. The ultimate goal of each program will be to advance pharmacy practice and patient care in hospitals and other collaborative healthcare settings.

The following types of initiatives are not eligible for educational grants: conference attendance and related travel, residency or fellowship programs, enrolment in accredited academic degree programs, and research projects.

The average value of individual education grants awarded over the last four years was $4963. A total of $20,000 has been allotted to fund education grants in 2018. For information about recent education projects awarded grants, please see the Education Grant Recipients page on the Foundation's website.
