NRHC Student of the Year Awards
Submissions are now closed. This Award will open in January 2023. See below for more information about the award and nomination process.
The Northeast Regional Honors Council annually recognizes two students as Student of the Year–one from a two-year institution and one from a four-year institution. The two students selected for an NRHC Student of the Year Award must have demonstrated scholastic excellence and must have made a significant impact on their honors program. The award recognizes academic excellence, outstanding leadership skills, socially engaged contributions, and innovations that the students have shown at their home institution. In addition, the winners are role models for other students in their honors programs and have demonstrated commitment that is above their peers. The selected students might also have worked to engage honors ideals outside their home institutions through participation in intercollegiate projects, NRHC and/or NCHC conferences, service to their communities, and more.
Students will be recognized with a plaque at the NRHC Awards Ceremony.
A completed application must include a nomination from a faculty or staff member and an application from that student. The application includes:
