The 2023-24 Student Award Nomination Period is Closed

Nomination Procedure

Compose a letter (approximately 1 page) for each nominee explaining your reason for recommending the student. Nominators should specifically address how the nominee meets the award criteria. Attach any relevant materials that will assist the Student Awards Committee in making their decision, such as: publications, CV, additional letters of nomination. The committee may seek additional information concerning the most promising nominees. Previous recipients of an award are ineligible to receive the same award again, but may be recommended for any remaining awards. Nominators are encouraged to refer to the description of each award, which includes a list of previous awardees.
