Microsoft Student Champ Program
Recognizing outstanding student developers
The Microsoft Student Champ Program strives to identify dedicated students who have demonstrated strong technical knowledge of Microsoft developer technologies, and who willingly share that knowledge with fellow students through campus groups, clubs, and online communities.
Microsoft works with faculty to identify deserving students and invite them to join this exclusive student community. Beyond the tangible benefits of the program, Microsoft Student Champs gain many opportunities to learn about Microsoft and our development platform, and use that knowledge to become even more active on campus and in the software development industry.
Microsoft provides the selected students with access to Microsoft Academic Resource Kit apart from other goodies. Working in close contact with Microsoft, provides the students with a hands on opportunity to improve their communication and leadership skills.
