The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) is accepting applications for the Elizabeth Paterson International Student of the Year Award. The International Student of the Year Award Program asks international students to offer their insights into the study-in-Canada experience. They must do this by writing a one-page letter telling family or friends what it's like to study in Canada, what they see as the advantages of their Canadian academic career, and their achievements so far.
The International Student of the Year will receive a $500 cash prize. Honorable mentions will be awarded to two "runners-up" who will receive prizes of $200 and $100 respectively. The International Student of the Year and honorable mentions will be recognized in CBIE publications.
The deadline to submit an application is March 31, 2009.
