- Students may be nominated by a faculty/staff member or friend. Nominations are completed and submitted online. The student will be notified of the nomination and will need to submit a completed University Awards application. [Nomination a Student]
- Without being nominated, a student may complete an application and submit it online to the University Awards Committee.
