CERIC has announced the recipients of its Graduate Student Award, providing support for four graduate students to attend the Cannexus National Career Development Conference, January 25-27, 2016 in Ottawa.

The recipients are:

  • Analise Anderson, MA candidate, Higher Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto
  • Jessica Isenor, PhD candidate, Counselling Psychology, University of Ottawa
  • Deepak Mathew, PhD candidate, Counselling Psychology, University of British Columbia
  • Lauren McCoy, MSc candidate, Counselling Psychology, University of Calgary

The award, presented annually to select full-time graduate students studying career counselling or career development, provides free registration to Cannexus and $1,000 to cover expenses to attend the conference. The Cannexus conference promotes the exchange of information and explores innovative approaches in the areas of career counselling and career development.

Eligibility for the award is based on participation in CERIC’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP), which includes the submission of a one-page article on a career development topic for publication through ContactPoint or OrientAction.

GSEP encourages the engagement of Canada’s full-time graduate students whose academic focus is in career development and/or a related field.
