December 05, 2019

Nominations for multiple student achievement awards for undergraduate and graduate students will be open through 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16.

The Student Achievement Awards are made possible each year through a combination of University funding and endowments made by alumni and supporters of Penn State students. The awards aim to recognize students for their achievements both in the classroom and in the greater community.

Undergraduate Achievement Awards

Those nominated for an Undergraduate Student Achievement Award will be considered for the Eric A. Walker Award, Ralph Dorn Hetzel Memorial Award and the John W. Oswald Award, which has many cross-discipline recipients. These awards are available only to University Park students in their final year of undergraduate study. The nomination form is available here.

Jackson Lethbridge Tolerance Award

Intended to recognize broad-minded students who openly promote responsible citizenship and civil respect for diversity within the Penn State community, this award is available to a junior, senior or graduate student who displays respect and tolerance to all they encounter.

Graduate Student Service Award

The Graduate Student Service Award is available to any graduate student outside the law and medical programs, and recognizes the graduate student who has best combined high academic achievement with leadership in University or other public activities. Any current graduate student who has completed one full year of graduate studies at Penn State is eligible. Click here for the nomination form.

In order to be considered, nominations for all awards must be received by 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16.
