Meet the first recipients of the Mahsa Amini Scholarship
Tara Balador and Chloe Jung are the first two recipients of the new Mahsa Amini Scholarship, which was presented by Candice Zhong of the Dawson Student Union at the Fall Awards Night Nov. 30. The Mahsa Amini Scholarship aims to help international and refugee students at Dawson who are affected by conflict and in need of financial aid.
“Being honoured with this award presented a significant chance for me,” said Tara, a student in Pure & Applied Science, in an interview with the Communications Office. “As an international student, it helped me to pay my college tuition fees. Moreover, it instilled confidence in me and conveyed a sense of importance, indicating that the college values and supports me in the challenges I face as an international student.”

Meet the awards recipients of Winter 2023
In case you missed it: over 50 Dawson students were recognized for their hard work, perseverance, and community involvement in the Winter 2023 semester.
Along with many other graduation awards, the newly established Jeff Barnaby Award for Film Production was presented for the first time during the graduation ceremony on June 20. The award was created to honour the innovative Mi’gmaq filmmaker and Dawson Cinema|Communications alumnus, Jeff Barnaby (1976-2022). The award is given to a graduating student in the Arts, Literature and Communication Program as seed funding for script development or the production of a short film.
We would like to congratulate the first person to receive this award, Cinema | Communications student Caleb Gales, who said “I see this award as much more than a financial contribution; it is also an enormous milestone in my filmmaking career. I intend to put 100% of my effort into this project and use this as an opportunity to teach myself more about the world of professional filmmaking.”
The funds for this award were contributed as part of the Romany Eveleigh Gift for Students in the Arts.
Dawson College would like to thank the teachers and staff who support all our students and award recipients throughout the year. We are also grateful to our generous donors who make these awards possible.
