The Counselling Foundation of Canada has established the Marilyn Van Norman Bursary to support community-based career development and employment practitioners in attending the Cannexus conference each year.
For 2024, there will be 13 bursaries available with one awarded within each province and territory. Bursaries will be for a single full conference registration to attend the virtual conference. Applications must be from charitable or non-profit Canadian community-based organizations. A limit of one application per organization is requested.
As CERIC’s funder and the Founding Partner of Cannexus, the Foundation has been awarding the bursary (formerly the Elizabeth McTavish Bursary) since 2006.
The bursary is given in recognition of Marilyn Van Norman, the retired Director of Research Initiatives at CERIC. Known as a collaborator, visionary and expeditor, she is widely respected for her more than 40 years of leadership in the career development field.
The application deadline is September 29, 2023.
