Financial Support

Student Bursary

Meal Exchange is pleased to offer a student bursary for delegates that require support to attend NSFS 2019.  We are able to offer all students who register to NSFS 2019 by June 30th a guaranteed $200 bursary to be used towards any (or combination) of the following: travel, accommodation costs (Hedden Hall residence at McMaster University) or conference registration fees. If you have higher than average costs (i.e. high travel costs) to attend NSFS, you may be eligible for more than $200 in funding towards your costs-please reflect this in your application. If you register after June 30th, you are still able to apply for a bursary, however we cannot guarantee support. Approvals will be made on an ongoing basis, with more funds available the sooner you apply and register.

Fundraising Resources

Many student unions, administrators, faculty and food services support students to attend the Summit-we encourage you to start exploring fundraising options on your campus. A fundraising letter template, linked below, can be used to seek sponsorship on your campus to attend NSFS 2019. For assistance, you can view the presentation slides and recording from a webinar held on the on-campus fundraising process. Feel free to connect with summit@mealexchange.com if you require further advice in seeking out additional support.
