Apply for the Pat Hibbitts Professional Development Bursary!

In 2016, CAUBO established a professional development bursary to honour the memory of Pat Hibbitts, a long-standing member, contributor, and supporter of continuing education. Each year, CAUBO offers this bursary to one institutional member who has not yet attended a conference. In 2020, CAUBO’s Annual Conference will be hosted by the University of Toronto.

The bursary provides the recipient with a complimentary conference registration, including a pre-conference seminar.

To be eligible for this bursary, the member must:

  • be currently employed at a CAUBO member university in one of the following functional areas: Academic Administration, Facilities Management, Finance, Human Resources, Internal Audit, Procurement, Risk Management, Taxes, or Treasury and Investment;
  • have been working for three years or less in a university environment (at time of application);
  • not have attended a CAUBO annual conference before.

Applications for the bursary may be self-submitted or submitted by a supervisor; however, all applications must be signed off by the member’s supervisor to ensure that the eventual recipient has approval to attend the CAUBO conference.

One recipient will be selected by lottery from the pool of all eligible submissions. The deadline to submit applications for the bursary is January 31, 2020. Complete the application form online today!
