Regional Professional Development Grant

Professional development grants are for self-learning activities that are prospectively planned by individual Fellows in collaboration with a mentor, supervisor or instructor. These self-learning activities are planned to achieve a defined set of learning objectives and qualify as planned learning projects within Section 2 (two credits per hour) of the Royal College’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program.

Professional development grants can be developed as individual traineeships to learn a skill or expand an area of competence relevant to one’s scope of practice. Professional development grants can equally support participation in formal courses offered by a university, college or institute.

All successful applicants receive up to $1,000 per week (i.e., up to $200 per day) up to a maximum of $4,000. Half the approved grant funds are distributed at the time the application is approved. The balance of the funds are distributed once the professional development activity has been completed and all required documents have been provided.
