The President’s Office and the Office of Community Engagement select recipients of the President’s Award for Service to the Community. Each year one award is given to a student and one to a faculty or staff member who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to service and made a significant and measurable impact on our community. Please note that because the student winner is recognized at convocation, students should be enrolled at W&M in the upcoming Fall semester.
The award carries a prize of $500, which is donated in the name of the award recipient to a community organization of the recipient's choice. The winners are recognized at opening convocation.
Any member of the W&M community (student, faculty or staff, full or part time) may apply; students should be enrolled in the upcoming Fall semester. The impact of the applicant's service need not be wide, but focused and reflecting a sustained commitment to a small group, community, or social issue.
Complete this application by June 15 at noon Eastern, and submit a letter of recommendation from someone familiar with your engagement (please save the document as "[your last name], recommendation") via email to the [[oce, Office of Community Engagement]]. Your recommender may be a community member, fellow student, staff, or faculty member.
If you'd like to nominate someone for the award, please submit this form by May 1.
