Jeff Dahn Trivia

That's right! Stan Selig, local trivia legend and former Dahn Lab employee, will host three high stakes rounds of Jeff Dahn trivia. Trivia categories will be based on subjects near and dear to Jeff's heart. You'll assemble a team (of 2 to 6 people) and compete with Jeff himself to become the inaugural Jeff Dahn Trivia Champions.

Insider tip: When you purchase your in-person ticket you can add-on a trivia hint to give your team a leg up on the competition. Maximum 5 per person.

More about the Bursary

The Jeff Dahn Bursary in Physics was created in 2017 by friends, colleagues, and students of Jeff Dahn to celebrate his 60th birthday. The idea was to give Jeff (someone who “has it all”) a present that would perpetuate his legacy of supporting students at Dal. The fund supports first-year physics and engineering students from Nova Scotia who demonstrate financial need. The fund is endowed, which means it will last forever, paying bursaries out of the accrued interest. Currently the bursary is worth $100k and supplies two $1500 scholarships annually. With your generosity we hope to grow the fund to be able to support more Nova Scotia physics and engineering students. When the fund reaches $300k it will be able to endow a full year of tuition ($10,000)!

The fundraiser event was initially scheduled for Jan 2022 but was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year, despite the event being postponed, generous donations totaled $76,025!!!!
