  • The application deadline has been extended for the Summer 2021 Virtual MASSIE conversation partner program until July 5, 2021.  
  • There are still 10 spots available for the program. Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis. 
  • It is advisable to complete this application on a computer or laptop. Formatting does not work properly on a smartphone.  
  • You must be available to attend the MASSIE conversation partner Virtual Meet and Greet on Tuesday, August 10 from 8-10 p.m. in order to apply and be accepted to participate in the program. We will do some fun activities and play some cool games during this event. 
  • There will be 4 other "group work sessions" where 2 pairs of students will discuss a theme (see the end of the application for themes that will be used) and prepare to host a virtual radio show. Exact dates will be announced in late June. Note that you do not need to be in Sackville to participate in this program. We will have someone in CHMA radio booth who will be able to facilitate the radio show and have all four people in remote location host the show. 
  • If we receive more applications than the number of participants, we will be matching students based on gender preferences and similar hobbies and interests.
