The Ian MacPherson Legacy Fund
The Co-operative Development Foundation of Canada (CDF), in partnership with Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC) and the Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation (CASC), has established a scholarship fund to commemorate the late Ian MacPherson and his outstanding contribution to the study and promotion of co‑operatives.
This fund supports student participation in research conferences, co-operative research, and co-operative involvement.
Students at post-secondary institutions under the age of 35 will be given priority, with a preference for those studying or researching co-ops and presenting at an event.
Applications are accepted year-round, but we recommend that you apply at least 60 days prior to the date of an event you wish to attend.
