Congratulations to Nathalie Reid and Rebecca Macdonald - winners of the Cary Boucock Memorial Award for 2008-09.
The Cary Boucock Memorial Award was established in 2000 as a tribute to the life and work of Cary Boucock, one of our young faculty members.
It was originally funded with a donation from the Société du Congrès Mondial de Sociologie 1998 as a thank-you gesture for our students' involvement in theInternational Sociological Association Meetings that took place in Montréal. This money was intended to support student participation in scholarly conferences.
When Cary died in 2000, the department used these funds to establish an Endowment Fund in his memory. We received a generous donation from the Boucock Family, and the rest from faculty and staff members of the department to reach our goal of $10,000. The first award was given in 2003-04. The full list of recipients can be seen below.
All undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University are eligible to apply. Two awards of up to $250 are given to support student conference participation each year. The deadline for applications is normaly in February each year with the award announcement in March.
