Institute Seeks Nominations for Awards

02/05/2013 

SUNY Cortland’s Institute for Civic Engagement is accepting nominations for its 2013 leadership awards as well as applications for six scholarships tied to community service.

College students, faculty and staff members, and community residents can submit nominations for the 2013 Leadership in Civic Engagement Awards by completing the form under the “community partners” heading on the Institute for Civic Engagement Web page.

Nominations, which will be reviewed by a committee made up of SUNY Cortland students, faculty and staff members, and community residents, will be accepted until Friday, March 15.

Additionally, applications for six civic engagement scholarships totaling between $1,000 and $2,000 are being accepted online.

The application deadline for those awards, which can be found by searching “community service” on the scholarship Web page, is Saturday, March 2. Students should pay close attention to scholarship requirements, such as minimum grade point average.

Both the recipients of the 2013 Leadership in Civic Engagement Awards and the scholarship winners will be recognized at the Leadership in Civic Engagement reception, scheduled for 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.

Since 2005, SUNY Cortland has recognized students, faculty and staff members, and community residents for their contributions to the local quality of life. Last year, 25 students, five faculty and staff members, three community members and two student groups received Leadership in Civic Engagement Awards.
