Now is a very timely opportunity to reevaluate our commitment to improving access to education for our students. The Black Lives Matter protests happening around the world have also sparked critical conversations at the University. With your help, we can, as a department, play an important role in investing in a more diverse student experience. You can play a critical part in helping us achieve this goal.
We have much work to do to improve the climate for students that self-identify identify as Black, Indigenous descent, or an underrepresent visible minority. All of us need to work together to make a more just society. With your gift, you are promoting equity and inclusivity for our graduate students.
Established by faculty, colleagues, alumni, and friends of the Department of Biology, this fund is awarded to Biology graduate students to remove financial barriers that might deter them from pursuing their education at Queen’s.
Thank you for your support!
