OFFICE OF GRADUATE STUDIES
April 12, 2013
As part of the All Campus Graduation Celebration, Student Affairs will recognize two remarkable students who have earned recognition in the UC San Diego community for their outstanding academic and leadership performance, and for enhancing the student experience at UC San Diego. One award will be given to an outstanding graduating undergraduate student and one to an outstanding graduating graduate or professional student.
High academic performance and participation in student organizations is important, however the primary purpose of the awards is to honor two students who have earned the admiration of the UC San Diego community for exceptional contributions to university life and who have generously served the university.
The two student recipients will each receive $1,000, a special gift from UCSD Alumni, and be publicly recognized amongst their peers at the All Campus Graduation Celebration on Friday, June 14, 2013.
This is a growing tradition at UC San Diego that serves to honor the most outstanding graduating students who are committed to the student experience at UC San Diego, are academically accomplished and are the leaders of the present that will become alumni leaders of the future.
I encourage you to nominate an outstanding senior or graduate student who you feel is deserving of this award. Nominations may come from UCSD faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Applications can be downloaded at http://vcsa.ucsd.edu today. The deadline for submission is Thursday, May 2, 2013.
