Student experience is one of Brock University’s greatest strengths, and a new ambassador program will recognize students who actively demonstrate their Brock pride and share it with potential new international students.
Under the new International Student Ambassador Award program, selected students will have their tuition fees cut from the international rate to the domestic rate — a discount of about $16,000.
“We really want to reward those international students who go above and beyond to represent the mission and vision of Brock University,” said Leigh-Ellen Keating, Director, Brock International Services. “These are the students who stand out both with their academic achievements and their community engagement on and off campus.”
Between 10 and 15 students will be selected as ambassadors through the program each year. To be eligible, they must hold sole citizenship with a country other than Canada and be registered in full-time undergraduate or graduate studies. Both incoming and returning students are welcome to apply.
“Brock University is proud to be a place that welcomes the world. This award is intended to attract the world’s top young people from a diversity of regions around the globe to join our growing international student population,” said James Mandigo, Vice-Provost, Enrollment Management and International.
The student ambassador recipients will represent the University through a variety of recruiting, community engagement and marketing initiatives in Canada and in their home countries. They must have a minimum 70 per cent academic average to be considered and they’ll be eligible to reapply each year, up to a maximum of four years.
Students interested in applying to be part of the program can fill out an entry form online and must submit it by 4:30 p.m. on May 15, 2017.
