Grad Student Town Hall: Funding
Time & Location
About The Event
Let's talk money.
How’s your funding? Do you have enough financial support to complete your research? To pay for your living expenses?
Join a group of your fellow grad students for a Town Hall on the complex factors impacting our financial health at McGill, and the consequences that this has on the quality of our research, our ability to complete our programs, and our wellbeing.
The evening will begin with a presentation about funding at McGill (and in grad school more broadly), move on to breakout sessions, and end with a discussion about ways to move forward, together.
**RSVP with your questions here.**
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 6 PM – 9 PM
Otto Maass Room 217
Dinner will be served
Hosted by AGSEM, but all graduate students are welcome!
Interested in facilitating small-group breakout sessions? (This would be taking some notes about what's being said, and helping to keep the conversation going--we'll even supply you with guiding questions and an outline of some suggested topics!)
We're looking for folks to facilitate discussions with other first-generation graduate students, queer folks, BIPOC, parents, caregivers, masters students, PhD students, folks from outside Canada, folks from Québec, folks from Canada but outside Québec, disabled folks, folks from Arts/Science/Engineering/Medicine/Music/etc, working-class folks...anything that shapes your grad financial experience!

Accessibility Information: Otto Maass has an accessible entrance, an elevator, and is wheelchair accessible. Gender-neutral washrooms are available throughout the building, but there is one clearly identified on the third floor (329A). Please let firstname.lastname@example.org know if there is any other accessibility info needed.
Land Acknowledgement: We acknowledge that we are meeting on the traditional land of the Kanien’kehá:ka, which has also been a place of gathering for other Indigenous peoples, including other members of the Haudenosaunee confederacy and Anishinaabe communities. AGSEM honours and respects these diverse indigenous peoples, and recognizes that our presence on this land is but one outcome of an ongoing colonial legacy. We reflect upon the impact of this heritage on our presence here today, and make this statement as a first step in interrogating the diverse effects of these under-acknowledged colonial histories.
