Gaspé, November 01, 2020 – Responding to a call for projects launched in the spring by the Cornélius-Brotherton Foundation, members of the staff of the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles innovated through the quality, variety and dynamism of the projects proposed. In view of the pandemic, trips and internships abroad were not authorized for CEGEP students and staff. Despite everything, ten projects were thus submitted under the 3 components of the financial support program:
- innovation in study programs;
- improvement of student life on campus;
- student mobility in the province.
The areas of intervention of the proposals submitted to the analysis committee were diversified. These initiatives targeted objectives as varied as the outdoors, aquarism, student anxiety, forestry, experimentation with vegetable crops, badminton and inter-campus or provincial exchanges. Following the recommendations from the analysis committee, the Foundation decided to contribute financially to the realization of the ten projects submitted for a total amount of $ 16,785. Here is a table of the selected projects:
Fondation Cornélius-Brotherton is very pleased to promote realizations improving student’s life at the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles. Upgrading educational, sporting and cultural activities is a notable addition to the actual range of possibilities. For a thirteenth consecutive year, such a financial aid is granted to a wide variety of projects.
Beeing part of our financial support program, 217 projects from the four campuses have, since 2008, received $452 297.
