Selection criteria

Only students who are graduating in spring or fall of the award year are eligible;

Recipients must currently be actively enrolled at UNB Saint John in either a full-time or part-time undergraduate degree program and be in good academic standing at the time of nomination;

Students have made voluntary extracurricular contributions to their academic program/department, or to UNB Saint John as a whole;

The student's voluntary contribution(s) may take the form of any one, or a combination, of the following: leadership on committees, or influence on student or university affairs; improvement in the quality of life of students; encouragement of fellow students to become involved in extracurricular activities; and contribution to the sense of community at UNB Saint John.

Leadership and involvement should be considered in relation to good academic standing. The value of the student's contribution, rather than an office held, should be the major criterion considered. See full selection guidelines.
