Nominations open for UCD President’s Award for Excellence in Student Activities 2016/2017
This year marks the 25th year of the Award scheme – the highest formal honour the University can bestow on a student for their contribution to UCD and to student life. Nearly 300 students have been recognised over the last quarter-century: from first Leinster Rugby caps to charity cycles to Galway, protecting and advocating the rights of those less fortunate, and giving hundreds of students an opportunity to make sense and developing our UCD community.
“We would like to think that most members of our student body would have made some contribution to others in their time in College. However, these awards winners have been so outstanding in this regard that they have been selected from among a large number to be publicly acknowledged.”
Dr Art Cosgrove, President: 1994-2004
Nominations are open until Wednesday 25 January 2017 and can be made online at this link (click here). More information on the Award, including previous winners, is available at www.ucdsocieties.com/presidentsaward.
