Two MRIA Academic Awards Have Gone National
The MRIA Institute for Professional Development is pleased to announce that two of our Association’s prestigious academic awards have gone national, with recipient eligibility extended to students at higher education institutions across Canada.
The John F. Graydon Award is now open to graduating students from a marketing research-related program at any accredited university in Canada; and the A.B. Blankenship Award will become open to graduating students from a marketing research-related program at any accredited community college in Canada. Student nominees will be asked to submit a research proposal in response to a marketing research case/problem.
Each winner will receive a $1,000 monetary award, a one-year Student or New Practitioner MRIA membership, as well as reimbursement of travel, accommodation and incidental costs to attend the Gala Awards Banquet held at the MRIA National Conference.
Going national presents opportunities not only to students across Canada, but also to organizations.
