National Walkout for Support Our Science

On May 1st, 2023 thousands of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, staff, and community supporters across Canada walked out of their academic institutions to demand increased federal investments in scholarships, fellowships, and grants to support increased pay for graduate students and postdocs.

Support Our Science supports the Bouchard Report and is asking the government to:

1) Increase the value of grad scholarships & postdoctoral fellowships to reflect inflation since 2003 (when they were last increased).


2) Index scholarships/fellowships to inflation going forward.

3) Increase the number of graduate and postdoctoral fellowships to reflect the 100% increase in the number of graduate students in Canada during the past 20y.


4) Increase in the Triagency research grant budget by 50% to support higher pay for grads/postdocs.
