Dear Student,

 

A phishing attempt is circulating, with the Subject line: “Apply for Financial Aids“, from sender: student.aid@mcgill.ca“. Please delete this email immediately! It does NOT come from a McGill source. It is a fraudulent attempt to gain access to personal information. McGill never solicits any such information by email. If you have already clicked on any of the links in this email and submitted your personal information, you need to change your McGill Password as soon as possible. See Change your McGill Password for instructions.

Dear Students of McGill University

We are considering some of our top students to receive financial aid. Navigating the payment and financial aid process is a very important part of your college career and we are here to help you. Reaching every student by helping you achieve your educational goals and academic success is our priority by assisting you with your financial needs.  All students are encouraged to apply for financial aid EVEN IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU WILL QUALIFY.  Financial Aid is designed to be used as a supplemental income for your educational expenses.  Please note: it may not cover your total expenses.

You are not required to apply it now, but you are encouraged to do so as it is a chance to you.  If you wish to apply your account, I have added the instructions below.

Queen’s University Health and Human Rights Conference

Hello,

 

It is with great excitement that we announce the Call for Abstracts for the 2013 Queen’s University Health and Human Rights Conference.

The Health and Human Rights Conference has run annually for the past 12 years. It is wholly student-organized, and is tailored to student participants. In the past, it has welcomed speakers such as Samantha Nutt, the Hon. Charlie Angus, Albert Schumacher, Jacalyn Duffin, Beverley Chalmers, and many more. The conference hosts a broad range of students from a wide variety of professions, including law, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy. In 2012, it was awarded the Queen’s University Human Rights Initiative Award. This year’s conference is titled Shaping Inclusive Health Policy, and our keynote speaker is Stephen Lewis.

Please find additional information about the conference and guidelines for research submission in the attached document or visit http://queenshhrc.wordpress.com/. Feel free to reply with any questions, comments, or concerns.
