Career Services Student Intern Awards

What is the Career Services Award?
Each year Career Services sponsors the "Career Services Award " to recognize those outstanding students who have participated in one or more of the University's pre-professional programs: co-op, internship, practicum, clinical, field work, or student teaching.
The Career Services Award will be presented to graduating students who are nominated by faculty for their personal achievements, contributions to their organization/work site, demonstrated personal and/or professional growth, evidence of leadership development and academic record. Both bachelor and master level graduating students are eligible for the awards.  Our hope is to recognize at least one student from each school and campus.

Nominating Process
Students will need to complete the application below with the required nomination form signed by a faculty member. In addition, the student must submit an updated resume, one-page essay, and obtain a letter of support from their intern/site supervisor. A committee will select the winners and students may be recognized at their school’s award event prior to graduation, if possible.  Winners will also receive a certificate of recognition and a trophy from Career Services.
