While at UC Merced, students work diligently to achieve academically and reach their leadership potential. Each year, the Margo F. Souza Student Leadership Center awards top students and student organizations for their outstanding leadership qualities, and honors staff and faculty members who have helped students accomplish their aspirations.
This year, the center is seeking applications for 14 distinctive awards. Students, staff and faculty members and community members are encouraged to nominate deserving students, student groups or mentors. Self-nominations are also encouraged. Nominations are due by 11:59 p.m. March 8.
A list of available awards and this year’s application can be found online.
All finalists will be invited to the Leadership Awards Finalist Reception at the Wallace-Dutra Amphitheatre on April 28. The Leadership Awards Ceremony will immediately follow the reception and is open to the public.
