Domestic Student - International Student Champion Award Category

It’s tough moving to a new country with a completely different culture, and sometimes it’s hard to meet new people. We want to recognise the domestic students in the Wellington region who are champions for our international students, helping make their stay even better. 

The judges will select up to two winners in this category. Students can apply for themselves, or be nominated by a staff member or by an international student. 

International Student Champion Award

Examples of championing and supporting international students can include, but are not limited to; enhancing the experience of international students studying in the Wellington region, organising and delivering events where significant numbers of international students attend and increasing engagement and integration of international students at your institution.

Eligibility Criteria 

The International Student Champion Award is open to domestic students currently studying in the Wellington region. Applicants should be citizens or permanent residents of New Zealand or Australia. Applicants must have studied at an educational institution in the Wellington region for four months or more of the 2020 academic year.  

Note: Former recipients of a Wellington International Student Excellence Award are not eligible to apply under this award category.
