As a not for profit event and organization, all of the proceeds from the paid Training Courses and the Trade Show are donated to local Calgary academic institutions such as: the University of Calgary (UofC), and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT); for use as student bursaries.

  • At UofC the Calgary Pump Symposium Bursary is awarded to six undergraduate Mechanical Engineering students per year, providing each of them with $5,000 towards their studies.

  • At SAIT the Calgary Pump Symposium Bursary is awarded to two Mechanical Engineering Technology students per year, providing each of them with $2,000 towards their studies. 

  • Starting in 2023 there will be a second bursary available at SAIT for students of the Industrial Mechanic Program, further details will be shared then they are available!

Since 2013 the CPS has donated almost $200,000 to Engineering and Engineering Technologies students to help educate future technical experts for the pumping industry.
