International student award nominations now being accepted

| 0 TrackBacks

The University Office of Global Programs (UOGP) is now accepting nominations for the Ardeth and Norman Frisbey International Student Awards. These awards annually honor and recognize outstanding contributions to international understanding by graduate and undergraduate 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. Recipients often have contributions in more than one area.

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

To apply, international students who meet the eligibility requirements should submit a completed application form, personal statement, and at least one (but not more than three) letter(s) of recommendation. Recommendations should address the candidate's qualifications in light of the criteria, and should be from faculty, staff, or colleagues familiar with the student's contributions.

The nomination deadline is Monday, March 21.
