The Canadian Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (CATAP) offers one scholarship annually to support attendance at the annual workshop and conference by a professional who might not otherwise be able to attend. Scholarships consist of full registration to attend the workshop and conference and three (3) nights of hotel accommodation. Scholarships will be awarded annually contingent on availability of funds.


Applicants must be currently employed at a non-profit organization in Canada that has service goals relevant to threat assessment and management and/or public safety.

Selection Considerations

All applications will be reviewed by the CATAP Scholarships Committee. Applications will be judged on the relevance of the educational opportunity to the applicant’s job, the applicant’s contributions to his/her professional community, and financial barriers to attending the conference without scholarship support.


Application Materials

  1. Letter of self-nomination describing (1) your current position, (2) relevance and benefits of attending the CATAP workshop and conference to your professional responsibilities, (3) contributions to your professional community, and (4) any financial barriers to attendance in absence of scholarship funding.
  2. One letter of recommendation from your supervisor and one letter from a colleague or professional contact.

Terms and Conditions of Acceptance

The successful applicant will be notified by e-mail by 07 September 2018. The award winner must respond in writing to confirm acceptance by the deadline identified in the e-mail notification. If the applicant does not respond by the deadline, the scholarship shall be rescinded without appeal. Scholarships are non-transferable and have no redeemable cash value. The award recipient is required to stay at the conference hotel unless she or he lives within driving distance of the conference venue.
