Meszaros Award

International students benefit from a recently-established award by Lethbridge College alumnus and accomplished builder Steve Meszaros.

The Steve Meszaros International Bursary makes a world-class education at Lethbridge College a reality for international students, especially those of eastern European descent.

When announcing his gift to the college in 2014, 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 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.
