Spirit of Princeton Award
Since its inception in 1995, The Spirit of Princeton Award has recognized a select group of undergraduate students who have made positive contributions to various facets of the University, including the arts, community service, student organizations, residential living, religious life and athletic endeavors. Recipients receive a certificate, book prize, and are honored at a dinner held in early May
Nominations will serve as the primary criteria for evaluation with particular emphasis placed on the breadth and depth of the nominee's contributions to numerous areas of campus life. A committee comprised of administrators and undergraduate students will review the nominations and select the winners. All undergraduate students are eligible for the Spirit of Princeton awards. Any member of the Princeton community can nominate or contribute to a nomination.
All nominations must be submitted by noon on Monday, April 10th, 2017. Nominations may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be notified by Thursday, April 20th, 2017.
Tips for Nominators:
- In preparing your letter, it may be helpful to review the bios of Spirit of Princeton winners from previous years.
- As this letter of nomination serves as the committee's primary criteria for evaluation, please be as detailed as possible and use specific examples.
- Highlighting the student’s involvement can only help the review committee clearly understand the student’s impact on the University and in the surrounding community.
- Recognize any student who informally makes a significant contribution (e.g., mentoring, bridging social connections, volunteering).
- Feedback from other sources may also be included in your letter. This can include anecdotes from fellow students, administrators, department representatives, and/or other faculty members.
