Grenfell Campus is home to a growing number of
International Students who come to Corner Brook from more than 40 countries from all over the world. We work hard to help all our students feel supported, happy and proud to be part of the Grenfell community, but we also know being an international student is not easy. Different challenges are experienced by our students in order to study in Canada. We are told that some of these include an expensive and extensive immigration process, feeling isolated, and having difficulties adjusting to a new environment. Many of our students tell us they struggle financially. Although the majority of study permit holders are authorized to work while they study, their hours are limited, and they must follow a series of regulations in order to do so. Grenfell Campus recognizes the importance of helping our students to overcome some of these financial challenges while at the same time celebrating the amazing work they do in making Grenfell Campus a better place for everyone.
For these reasons, Grenfell's internationalization working group has established the
Student Community Leadership Awards that will recognize and reward students who have contributed to a sense of community at Grenfell Campus and who have demonstrated innovation and leadership in their approach to community-building, particularly through volunteer initiatives. One award will be granted to a study permit holder and the other will be awarded to a non-study permit holder who has demonstrated a strong sense of allyship with our international student population.
Please consider making a gift to support these awards. Your donation is tax deductible and will make a real difference.
As always, there are many ways to give to Grenfell Campus. If you wish to choose a different initiative, there are other areas that need your support.
By making a gift to either the Student Community Leadership Awards, to a specific campus priority, to an already established scholarship or in memory of a loved one, you are providing the extra support our students need to continue their studies and succeed. Your gift will stay right here at Grenfell.
