2005 – ASPP funds 5,000th scholarly book
After celebrating its 50th anniversary in 1991, the ASPP begins marking some significant milestones. During the 1997-1998 program year, the ASPP funds its 4,000th book. It crosses the 5,000th book threshold in 2005-2006, and in 2010-2011 it will fund its 6,000th book. Celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2016, the ASPP will have funded over 7,000 scholarly books. There can be no doubt that this program has played a pivotal role in the creation of a distinctly Canadian body of knowledge in the humanities and social sciences.
