The Program of Excellence Award 2014

About the award:

The intent of this award is to acknowledge the programming efforts of student organizations beyond events that local chapters of national organizations may be required to complete.

The quality of student life at the University of Idaho is greatly enhanced by the co-curricular opportunities ASUI recognized student organizations provide each year. From cultural and spiritual events, to educational, social, or civic engagement initiatives, student-organized programs make an impact on the UI community in a variety of ways. In an effort to recognize and reward those ASUI recognized student organizations that provide quality programs/events to the campus community, the ASUI Activities Board and the ASUI Student Engagement Office established the Program of Excellence Award. 

Two ASUI recognized student organizations will receive $250. Nominations will be accepted by faculty, staff, students, or organization members. 

Awarded annually to two ASUI recognized student organizations, this monetary award will be used by the recipients to further enhance student-programming efforts on the UI campus. Programs/events of all sizes and budget, held within the current academic year, are eligible and encouraged to apply. There are four steps in the application process.
