The CSCM National Board has established a program to provide financial support for those CSCM members wishing to register for BMI courses as part of their professional development requirements to earn the CCM designation.
Subject to the funding parameters established by the Board below, the CSCM will annually grant bursaries to those CSCM members registered in the CSCM Certification Program to cover the cost of registration for BMI courses.
Funding for the bursaries comes from the Professional Manager Development Fund. The amount available each year for bursaries is determined by the Board.
Bursaries shall be granted based on the following criteria:
Two rounds of applications are accepted annually:
March 1 and September 1
All applications for Joe Perdue BMI Bursaries must be submitted to the Professional Manager Development Fund Committee through the CSCM National Office and shall contain the following information:
National Office will notify all applicants of the Board’s decision immediately following the meeting at which that decision is made.
Payment of the bursary shall be made upon the submission of confirmation from CMAA or CSCM of the successful completion of the course for which the funds were applied.
Please note: Applicants will be asked whether their respective Clubs paid for the registration or they paid personally. If the Club paid, the bursary cheque will be issued payable to the Club. If the individual manager paid, CSCM will be issuing a T4A form for that manager for income tax purposes.
