Trick or Eat is Meal Exchange’s annual, student-led, national event dedicated to helping the 40% of Canadian post-secondary students who experience food insecurity. On Halloween, instead of candy, thousands of Trick or Eaters from communities across Canada will go door to door to collect food for campus food organizations, and funds to support the work of students to continue to advocate for good food for all. You can participate today by donating or joining a team! Please register on the Trick or Eat website, and show up at the SUB from 6-9 on Halloween. You can register under the DAGS team if you’d like, or as your own society team for a competition. You just all need to register and sign the appropriate waiver.
DSU is splitting the proceeds between FeedNS and the DSU Food Bank! They are going to take as much as the food bank can handle, but it’s not very big so the majority will be donated to FeedNS.
Science & Policy Exchange organization of the consultation on graduate student and post-doc funding, scholarships, & fellowships.
Last year, the Canadian Government reinvested in research but left some unfinished business regarding funding for scholarships and fellowships for trainees. Budget 2018 made the promise that “Over the next year, the Government will be doing further work to determine how to better support students, the next generation of researchers, through scholarships and fellowships” and we wish to hold them accountable on this promise.
We want to hear from graduate students and post-docs about their interactions with the federal funding system. With the data collected from our survey, we hope to represent the student and post-doctoral voice to the Government of Canada for their consideration in Budget 2019. The consultation will be open until November 12th, after which we will summarize the results in a report.
