Professional Development

Community of Practice

Thanks to the generosity of Ross W. Marsh Consulting, ISAP Canada is proud to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to professional development in the field of advancement by providing financial support to fundraisers who might not otherwise be able to attend professional development opportunities. 

In support of a partnership with the Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE), ISAP Canada will provide three (3) bursaries to cover the full registration cost of attending the 2022 CCAE Independent School Summit being held virtually from February 8-10, 2022.

Eligibility: The 2022 Ross W. Marsh Consulting Group Inc. Fellowship is open to those employed at a Canadian independent school and who spend a percentage of their time on advancement activities, including fundraising, marketing & communications, advancement services, and alumni relations. The bursaries are open to all members, however, preference will be given to those who are newer to ISAP, those working in newer advancement programs, and those with limited professional development budgets. Please note that only one bursary will be awarded per school. 

Application Deadline: Tuesday, November 30, 2021. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

Selection: Chaired by the ISAP Canada Past President, a committee of ISAP members and honorary directors will review applications and select recipients using a scoring system. Successful recipients will be notified before January 14, 2022. Bursaries will be payable to the recipients’ schools and are intended to cover the registration costs of the 2022 CCAE Independent School Summit.

Questions: Please contact Geneviève Delaquis, ISAP Canada Past President at isapcanada@gmail.com for any questions about the Ross W. Marsh Consulting Group Inc. Fellowship.
