We lost a longtime Canadian Media Guild member and friend this summer. Dennis Bueckert, environment and health reporter for The Canadian Press,?died in August under tragic circumstances.
In recognition of his dedication to reporting on the environment, The Dennis Bueckert Memorial Scholarship in Environmental Journalism is being established. It will be awarded annually to a student with a strong interest in the environment proceeding from third to fourth year in the Bachelor of Journalism program at Carleton University.
Preference will be given to a student entering the Science and Medical Journalism specialization.
Individuals wishing to donate to the scholarship can donate online at http://www.carleton.ca/givenow. Donations are tax deductible.
