Opening Opportunities for Indigenous Peoples in the Business Valuation Profession

The Prosper Scholarship is part of CBV Institute’s commitment to fostering the growth and participation of a diverse community of individuals in the business valuation profession. Specifically, this scholarship will make the CBV designation more attainable to an individual on an annual basis who self-identifies as Indigenous and help advance his/her career in the dynamic field of business valuation.

Launched in 2024, the Prosper Scholarship will be awarded to an Indigenous university graduate or soon to be graduate, and will allow the recipient to participate in CBV Institute’s Program of Studies, the first step in earning the coveted CBV designation.

CBV Institute is very pleased to announce that Benjamin Cooper-Janvier, CPA, MPAcc, is the inaugural recipient of this scholarship.

Ben holds a Bachelor of Commerce (with Distinction), a Master of Professional Accounting, and the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation.

He is a proud member of Cold Lake First Nations and is grateful to still be connected to his community.

This scholarship covers an individual’s course fees, annual student fees, and Membership Qualification Exam fee.*

Applicants must be a person who self-identifies as Indigenous (i.e. Status Indian/First Nations, Non-Status Indian/First Nations, Métis, or Inuit).

Applications for next year’s scholarship will open in late January 2025.

*This scholarship is worth more than CDN$8,000 and will be in the form of complimentary student fees, course fees (one complimentary enrolment in each course), and the Membership Qualification Exam (one time).
