One other aspect of the Staff Giving Program is the Buddy Program. This is a voluntary program which pairs a staff giver with a scholarship recipient to provide support and advice throughout the year. This can be coffee catch ups or just a friendly face to chat with at various planned activities and events.
Please note that this is not an academic mentorship and no knowledge of the students study area is required. However, if you would prefer a student from a particular discipline, then that’s something we can look to match up. If you’re in the program, we’ll contact you at the beginning of each year to find out if you’d like to be a buddy.
Enjoy hearing from some of our staff buddies and their scholarship recipients.
