      CIBPA Bursary Program for Students

      Apr. 3, 2012

      The Canadian Italian Business and Professional Association (CIBPA) has opened its call for the 2012 edition of its Bursary Program. Full time university students at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate studies level who are Canadian citizens, recognized residents of Quebec, and are of Italian origin, are eligible to apply.

      Since its creation in 1961, the CIBPA Bursary Program has granted over $3 million to Italian-Canadians who have achieved academic excellence and have met the established financial assistance criteria.
Last year, 50 students were awarded bursaries totally more than $135,000. Funding for the program comes from the CIBPA Trust and from donations collected among the Italian business community of Quebec.
Last year, the CIBPA introduced a new bursary – the Meritorious Bursary – that is based solely on academic achievements.

      The deadline to apply is September 30, 2012. Winners will be announced at a Bursary Night Gala later in the fall.
