CERIC has announced the recipients of this year’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP) Award, providing support for four graduate students to attend the Cannexus21 National Career Development Conference, January 25 & 27 and February 1 & 3, 2021 online.

The recipients are:

  • Roxy Merkand, PhD Candidate, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, University of Waterloo
  • Gabrielle Beaupré, PhD Candidate, Education, Université du Québec à Montréal
  • Janet Payne, PhD Candidate, Education, University of Prince Edward Island
  • Walaa Taha, MSc Candidate, Educational Psychology, University of Calgary

The award, presented annually to select full-time graduate students studying career development, provides free registration to Cannexus – going virtual in 2021 – and $1,000. The Cannexus conference promotes the exchange of information and explores innovative approaches in the areas of career counselling and career and workforce development.

Eligibility for the award is based on participation in CERIC’s Graduate Student Engagement Program (GSEP) and submission of a one-page article on any career development topic. Read the award-winning articles and all the thought-provoking submissions on CERIC’s GSEP Corner.

Many GSEP members will also be presenting student posters at Cannexus – a great opportunity for attendees to learn from the next generation of career researchers.

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