CERIC has announced the recipients of this year’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP) Award, providing support for four graduate students to attend the Cannexus19 National Career Development Conference, January 28-30, 2019 in Ottawa.

  • Mirit Grabarski, PhD Candidate, Organizational Behaviour, Ivey Business School, Western University
  • Simon Trudeau, PhD Candidate, Industrial and Organizational Psychology, University of Montreal

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 CERIC’s GSEP Corner.

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