Do you know an international student currently studying in Australia that has fully embraced their time Down Under? If so, you should nominate them for a Council of International Students Australia (CISA) International Student of the Year award!
The award is all about recognizing the significant contribution that International Students make to the Australian community. CISA is looking for a well-balanced international student, who has not only demonstrated academic excellence but also dedicated a portion of his or her time to help others and made a difference.
We can think of a ton of OzTREKK students who are fulfilling that mandate!
The selection criteria are the student must have good academic progress while in Australia and have made a significant contribution towards the community while in Australia. In essence, they must have demonstrated leadership, innovation and creativity in their work and be an inspirational role model particularly for students.
The prize includes a trophy, a gift card of significant amount and a scholarship of up to $1,000 to cover the costs of the award winner’s trip to the CISA conference in Brisbane this year.
So, if you have a friend that’s made a difference during their time in Australia, nominate away! And you’re also able to nominate yourself if you feel you meet all the qualifications. It’s ok to pat yourself on the back!
Nominations close May 30, 2012 and you can learn more on CISA website.
The winner will be selected by an independent committee made up of industry and government representatives and nominees will be informed of the outcome via email.
