Student Support Initiative

The Student Support Program is a CSQ initiative to encourage students from around the world who are interested in pursuing a career in the field of quality control, quality assurance and/or quality management to participate in the activities of the Canadian Quality Congress. It is designed to engage future generation leaders and quality champions early in their professional careers. The Student Support Program allows participating organizations to sponsor and help students by helping them in their attempt to participate in the CSQ events at a special rate or at no cost to them. Sponsorship for the CQC includes complimentary student registrations under some acceptable levels of sponsorship. This far, we have helped students from Universities of British Columbia, Toronto, Manitoba, Alberta, Carleton and McGill. We invite individuals and organizations to contribute to this program by:

  • Specifically defraying part or all of the registration costs to the Canadian Quality Congress for a student;
  • Subsidizing a student’s transportation or accommodation at the Canadian Quality Congress;
  • Offering a student your ticket to an event if a member of your organization is unable to attend.
