CERIC has announced the recipients of this year’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP) Award, providing support for four graduate students to attend the Cannexus18 National Career Development Conference, January 22-24, 2018 in Ottawa.

  • Zarina Giannone, PhD student, Counselling Psychology, University of British Columbia
  • Ashlee Kitchenham, MEd candidate, Counselling Psychology, University of New Brunswick

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.
