I know how important a financial boost can be to student success. Also, I feel it is really important for students to know and feel that the whole Dalhousie community supports them and wants to see them succeed. Here's to those students who benefit from this very practical form of encouragement!
Most students need a little support while gaining education for their future, which in turn, allows them to teach and mentor others. I am honoured to be able to support even one student in the smallest way. Best of luck to all with their dreams; now make them a reality.

Our students' success is the most important thing!
When I was at Dalhousie, I had to use the emergency funds available to students. I am happy to see a project directly supporting the needs of students so they can continue on in their studies. I now work in fundraising at a college and I see the benefits of these funds every day!

I clearly remember being in undergrad and struggling with all the academic pressures to pass and move forward within the faculty structure PLUS have a Significant amount of extracurricular activities that kept me far more busy than my academic pursuits. I also worked at the Mic Mall almost 30 Hrs/week to try and make ends meet. It was really tough those last few semesters trying to make it work. It almost came crashing down a few times. Financial Programs like these could have relieved some of the stress and anxiety I had taken on myself.

I was a foreign medical student at Dalhousie many years ago. I know the experience of longing for home during the Holiday Season all too well. My family and I send our best wishes to all the students far away from home during this holiday season. We applaud Dalhousie for this initiative and will continue to give our support in the years ahead. Sincerely, Dr. & Mrs.John J. Akabutu & Family Edmonton.
Season's Greetings! Studying is hard yet enjoyable work. I hope this meal helps fuel your ongoing studies. Happy Holidays.
