CPA PEP students can apply for a bursary if they are registered in CPAWSB or the MPAcc. program at the University of Saskatchewan.
Students attending a BC post-secondary institution
can apply for the CPAEF David Sale Memorial Bursary which was created in memory of David Sale FCPA FCGA who was a long time academic and active member of the profession.
These CPAEF bursaries are open to BC students and are based on financial need. Applications for bursaries can be found on the CPAEF website
