About the Radhika Jaggernauth Conference Scholarships

In August of 2012, the Canadian prospect research community lost a valued member. Radhika Jaggernauth passed away after being diagnosed with cancer. Radhika was an Apra Canada Director responsible for the Regional Representatives and had given a great deal of time volunteering with APRA over the years. Radhika contributed directly to the success of a number of organizations including the Heart and Stroke Foundation, UNICEF and the United Way of Greater Toronto. A kind hearted, funny, inquisitive, and focused individual - committed to Apra Canada and the research profession. In Radhika's honour, the 2011-2012 Board of Directors renamed the Apra Canada Scholarships the Radhika Jaggernauth Memorial Scholarships.

Prospect Research in Canada: An Essential Guide for Researchers and Fundraisers

Intended for fundraisers and researchers just starting out with prospect research, this book is an invaluable resource for those needing to establish training and guidelines for their organization or educational programs. It also offers a wealth of information for those from the private sector who realize the unique skill sets required to successfully conduct research in Canada.

In this book, 30 skilled contributors share their front-line experiences in the field of prospect research. Through their words and knowledge they reveal why Canadian researchers are not only specialists in their field, but also passionate about ethics and standards and continually improving a profession that they love.

Edited by Tracey Church and Liz Rejman, this book was made possible due to the generous sponsorship support of Apra Canada (Association of Professional Researchers for Advancement, Canada).
