Nominate and Apply


All members of the Bobcat family should have a say in recognizing our deserving students. The nomination process is simple and can be completed in mere seconds.

After making a nomination, you will receive confirmation of your submission and the student you recommended will be made aware with an email encouraging them to apply.

Students who receive nominations are significantly more likely to apply. We all need a little encouragement from time to time! Nominations for 2024 are closed.

After the initial phase of nominations, Bobcats across campus are encouraged to apply for recognition. With more than 20 leadership awards, there are opportunities to be recognized for a wide variety of accomplishments and contributions.

We encourage students to apply for multiple opportunities to win, which can easily be done with a single application. Applications for 2024 are closed.

Apply for an award


Following the application process, committees assemble to evaluate applicants and select the deserving winners. The committees are made up of students, faculty and staff from across the university.

Application review and selection will take place in February 2024. Applicants will be notified in March.
