Awards and Grants

Hicks Morley Fellowship

Jenny Forestell, Board Chair – GPOP (L); George Vuicic, Partner – Hicks Morley Hamilton Stewart Storie LLP, Ottawa office (C); Denise Amyot, President & CEO, CICan (R), 2017

Hicks Morley Fellowship has been established in the amount of $1,000.00 per year for a five year period, commencing 2018 through to 2022. This award was created to support the attendance of one GPOP member at our annual conference, which is held in conjunction with the Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan)
annual conference. In times of fiscal restraint, the Hicks Morley Fellowship will enable one of our valued members to attend the GPOP annual conference and give them the opportunity of connecting with peers, as well as providing a unique personal development opportunity.

Many thanks and appreciation to Hicks Morley for their generosity and support. Our thanks also to fellow Director, Cheryl McMurray, for pursuing the idea of a fellowship and making it a reality.
