Student Achievement Award

The University of Montana's Diversity Advisory Council hosts a Student Achievement Awards Reception each spring. The reception and awards ceremony is sponsored by the University President and the Vice President for Student Affairs. This reception honors those students who have been nominated for their leadership and support of diversity. All students, faculty and staff are invited to submit nominations online.

A student is eligible for nomination if he/she:

  1. Has attended the University of Montana for a minimum of one full semester during the award year and is currently in good academic standing.

To nominate a student please be prepared to describe (in 200 words or less) how they have demonstrated leadership, served as a role model, and contributed substantially to the ideals of diversity through academic, community and/or campus activities, service and contributions.

No one factor will be the sole basis for a student's selection. Student selection is made with special care and deliberation. The honor is very special and provides an incentive for all students.  A student may receive this recognition more than once. A Diversity Advisory Council subcommittee will review all of the nominations and select those students most worthy of the award. View group photographs of previous years' honorees.
