Student Sponsorship Program

student-program2.jpgCCPPP believes it’s important to support the next generation of up-and-coming P3 leaders by providing the opportunity to come to our annual conference.

Again this year, we’re offering student sponsorship awards valued up to $3,000 for up to 12 talented post-secondary students from across Canada to come and join us in Toronto at our 27th annual conference.

The award will help cover students’ travel, accommodation and conference registration costs.

Our student delegates will have direct access to their P3-sector sponsor, participate in a pre-conference orientation session, and attend stimulating keynote speeches and panel discussions on the emerging topics in the field of P3’s from prestigious leaders from Canada and around the world. Students will be asked to assist in conference related tasks including social media outreach and other small tasks as required.

Graduate students and upper-year college and undergraduate university students who are studying in a relevant field (e.g. finance, engineering, business, law, public administration, political science, economics, planning, and construction management) are eligible to apply. While CCPPP will strive to ensure a broad range of participation, students will be evaluated based on the quality of their application.

Applications

Applications for P3 2019 are due by September 23, 2019.

If you have any inquiries about the Student Program, please contact Daryl Gonsalves, Stakeholder Relations and Policy Officer, The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships at dgonsalves@pppcouncil.ca.
