Career Boost Awards
Since 2014, the Career Boost Awards (formerly the Ryerson Experiential Learning Work Study Awards) has been providing an opportunity to recognize our career boost students’ significant achievements, as well as the contribution of our host employers, who directly mentor, support and impact our students’ professional development.
The awards ceremony takes place annually in late March at the Student Experience Awards, with nominations opening at the start of the calendar year. All current Career Boost employers and student staff will be notified via email when nominations open and we welcome your nominations!
