The Scholarship Trust has been established to create an endowment fund from which monies will be awarded to students enrolled in postgraduate degree programs in anatomy to help defray expenses when attending the annual CFBS meeting to present their research. An essential component of a student's training is the opportunity to present and defend the results of their research before other scientists.

The CAANCB/ACANBC recognized that funds for this purpose are scarce and established an endowment from Association funds several years ago. At present a minimum of five awards of $100 are distributed annually. The Awards Committee of the Association selects those abstracts to be supported based on the excellence of the scientific work. In an effort to enlarge the program, the Association approached the Federal Government and created the CAANCB/ACANBC Scholarship Trust.

The further development - value and number of future awards - of the Trust is dependent upon the tax deductible donations of Association members. All monies donated to the trust will be expended only for the purposes outlined.

Donations are tax deductible as a credit and can be submitted to Revenue Canada and/or Revenu Quebec in the year the donation has been made. An official tax receipt will be issued provided that the donor has indicated that the donation be held for a period of not less than 10 years.

The donation form provided below includes a statement of this intent. The purpose of this declaration is to permit the accrual of funds as a Trust, with travel awards drawn from the interest generated.
