The IPIC Educational Foundation is a registered charity. Its object is to encourage education and scholarship in the IP field. The Foundation currently awards prizes for the students achieving the highest marks in the Patent Agent and Trademark Agent exams each year. The trustees of the Foundation and IPIC Council wish to expand the role of the Foundation and to increase the capacity of the Foundation to provide financial support to worthwhile educational activities in the IP field.
The mandate of the Fundraising Committee will be to:
- Identify specific needs for financial support to enable IP practitioners and students to further their education and scholarship.
- Develop and execute a fundraising strategy to meet those needs.
