Dr. Frances Chandler Bursary Fund

We are pleased to announce the CARA executive committee voted unanimously to name the CARA bursary fund for students in the Research Administration Certificate in honour of Past President Dr. Frances Chandler.

As a long time CARA member Fran's contribution to professional development has been exceptional - she has mentored countless new research administrators, presented several webinars and taught a course in the Research Administration Certificate. As CARA President, Fran established the partnership with Mohawk College that resulted in the development of Canada's first college certificate in research administration. The program had 12 graduates in its first year and currently has over 100 students. In stewarding the partnership, Fran prioritized academic excellence and accessibility and contributed significantly to program development. 

CARA re-invests money from the partnership with Mohawk College in bursaries for our members who are advancing the profession through their studies. The association's commitment to supporting members reflects Fran’s long-time commitment and vision to have formal education in the profession. We are honoured to have her leadership and recognize the legacy of her tangible achievements by naming this fund in her honour for the next five years.
