Holiday gift-wrapping yields $9,900 for our Living Campus

January 25th, 2023

The Dawson Foundation and the Sustainability Office would like to thank the 33 volunteers who gave their time in December and all those who donated at the Dawson gift-wrapping station in Alexis-Nihon Mall.

Over 21 days of holiday gift-wrapping, a total of $9,900 was raised. These funds will be used by the Sustainability Office for learning activities and projects that contribute to well-being for all on our Living Campus. While getting their gifts wrapped, visitors and donors learned about Dawson’s Living Campus projects, including the gardens, the beehives, the Monarch Butterflies and more.

Discover 12 projects funded by Foundation

A dozen projects proposed by Dawson students, faculty and staff have been approved for funding through the Dawson Foundation’s new Student Academic Enrichment Fund.

A website page showcases the projects and allows others to invest in a particular project through a donate button.

The Student Academic Enrichment Fund is supported by students each semester and is meant to be a source of funds for projects that demonstrate a clear benefit for Dawson students and represent an activity that goes over and above core competencies for completion of a program. The selection committee, including representatives from the Dawson Student Union, Academics and Student Services, meets twice a year to review and approve project proposals.

The next round of project applications will open later this semester and will be announced in D News and the Omnivox student news feed.

DTU Award goes to student with don’t-give-up message

The Dawson Teachers’ Union Polytechnique Memorial Scholarship is given to a student who has shown a commitment to persevering and overcoming obstacles within their field.

This year, the award was given to Fred-Dgennie Louis, a student in Computer Science, who said: “It means a lot and I am very grateful. It was the least thing I expected since figuring out my path and where I wanted to go has been a struggle. You know after high school, you’re thrown into a completely new environment, and you’re just expected to go on, graduate and then go to university.”
