Steve MeszarosMESZAROS AWARD MAKES COLLEGE ACCESSIBLE TO INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

International students will soon be able to benefit from a recently-established award made by Lethbridge College alumnus and accomplished builder Steve Meszaros.
 
The Steve Meszaros International Bursary will make a world-class education at Lethbridge College a reality for international students, especially those of eastern European descent. Watch for more details later this month.

When announcing his gift to the college in April, Meszaros said that Lethbridge College gave him his start in life, and he feels an obligation to give back. With this award, he hopes to help young people from around the world come to Canada and add their strong work ethic and values to the country. In addition, Canadian students will benefit from having a diverse campus – whether that diversity is found in students who come from small towns, big cities, different provinces or different countries.
