AFP Quebec understands the economic challenges that current and prospective members face and is pleased to offer our support via our annual membership scholarship program. The goal of this program is to recruit new members and retain existing members who are unable to afford annual membership dues due to personal and/or professional circumstances.

AFP-Quebec has available *18 scholarships to cover the full cost ($340) of an annual membership to AFP. The scholarships are available to both current and new members, with preference given to those with demonstrated financial need.

All applications must be received by Septembre 29, 2023 and awardees will be announced by the end of October.

*8 are made possible thanks to funding from Global




    AFP-Quebec is collecting demographic information for all scholarship applicants in an effort to investigate the diversity of our community. Doing so is optional, however we appreciate your help so that AFP can continuously strive to remove barriers to full and active participation in our programming and promote inclusion in our diverse community. All information that is submitted will remain strictly confidential, will be deidentified from the rest of your application, and its use is strictly for the purposes of AFP-Quebec’s research efforts.

    For the purposes of this survey, aboriginal/indigenous persons include people who identify as First Nations (Status, non-Status, Treaty), Métis, Inuit, Native or North American Indian (including North and Central America and the Caribbean).

    For the purposes of this survey, racialized persons are people (other than Aboriginal/indigenous persons) who are non-white in colour and non-Caucasian in race, regardless of their place of birth or citizenship. (Sometimes referred to as “racially visible” or “visible minority”).

    For the purposes of this survey, persons with a disability are people who have a chronic,long-term or recurring physical, sensory, mental, learning or intellectual impairment, that, in interaction with a barrier, hinders that person’s full and effective participation in society.  This includes, but isn’t limited to, people whose functional limitations due to their impairment have been accommodated in their workplace (ex: by the use of technical aids, changes to equipment or other working arrangements). 

    Note regarding language: Language, particularly in relation to sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, involves social constructs which evolve over time. The definitions above are not meant to label individuals but are meant to be helpful functional descriptors. They are not standardized and may be used differently by different people. For the purposes of this survey, gender identity refers to each person’s internal and individual experience of gender. It is their sense of being a woman, man, both, neither or anywhere along or outside of the gender spectrum. Gender expression refers to how a person expresses their gender through behaviour and outward appearance such as dress, hair, make-up, body language and voice. A person’s name and pronoun are also common ways of expressing gender identity.

    For the purposes of this survey, sexual orientation refers to how a person characterizes their emotional and sexual attraction to others.
