The national executive council is very pleased to announce a new national award, the Claudette Upton Scholarship. Named in memory of honorary life member Claudette Reed Upton-Keeley, this award will recognize a promising student editor from among our membership.
The national executive council is grateful to members of West Coast Editorial Associates (WCEA) for their initiative in proposing the award and for providing a generous gift to help establish the award's endowment fund. Additional donations are very welcome. (Please make your donation payable to "Editors' Association of Canada" with "Claudette Upton Scholarship" written on the memo line.)
Application instructions for the Claudette Upton Scholarship will be available later in 2009, with the first award being presented in 2010.
