Nominations sought for International Student Award

The University Office of Global Programs (UOGP) is now accepting nominations for the Ardeth and Norman Frisbey International Student Award. This award honors and recognizes outstanding contributions to international understanding by graduate and undergraduate international students (holding non-immigrant status) enrolled in a full-time academic program at any Penn State campus. Exemplary contributions furthering international understanding consist of academic, athletic or other extra-curricular campus activities and/or community involvement in school or civic group programs or service projects. Past recipients have made contributions in more than one area.

Please note that international activities should have taken place at Penn State and that students must be enrolled for the 2013-2014 academic year in order to receive the award.

Three awards of $1,000 each will be given to one undergraduate international student, one graduate international student, and one outstanding international student leader, regardless of academic level.

International students who believe that they meet the stated eligibility criteria must complete an application form, including a personal statement. Students must secure at least one (but not more than three) letter of recommendation addressing the candidate's qualifications in light of the eligibility criteria.

The nomination deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, March 15.

A nomination form for the Ardeth and Norman Frisbey International Student Award can be found here.
