For many Dalhousie students, moving from in-person classes to online learning has been a challenge. The Student Technology Fund will help those who do not have access to the technology they need to excel in their courses in a virtual environment.
With your support, we can provide students with the resources and technology they need to continue their studies remotely, including:
• Laptop computers
• Computer rentals
• Mobile internet devices (Turbo sticks, internet keys) to provide internet access to students in rural areas
Your donation – no matter the size – will make an immediate and lasting difference for Dalhousie students. Every dollar helps. If you would like more information about this campaign or how to make a multi-year gift, please contact: Ben McIsaac, AVP Development at Ben.McIsaac@dal.ca or by phone at 902-494-4576.
I benefited from a much needed bursary in my freshman year. Proctor and Gamble were the donor company.
I submit this gift with love hoping it will bring someone the resources they need to thrive during these strange and uncertain times. Even though we're apart, you're still in my thoughts. Sending you hugs and well wishes from my home in Halifax. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
All the best to you for successful campaign during these difficult times!
Being without regular access to the internet in university during normal circumstances in 2020 would be almost unthinkable; for someone to endure that fate during this pandemic and quarantine is something I can't abide. Good luck to you all.
Being a part of Dal is being part of the community. As a community, we will succeed.
Where possible, we all need to do what we can to support our students - we need to be there for them! Every little bit helps in this strange, strange time!
I hope we can keep all our students engaged and connected - connected with us and connected together.
Proud to support Dalhousie in this time of need
Access to technology creates inclusion in education - the COVID-19 pandemic will create an even bigger socioeconomic disparity gap. I want to help close that gap.
