2018 Comm. Engage. Award


The time has come once again to nominate a student for the fifth annual Community Engagement Award.

As you may recall, members approved the 2017/18 budget at last year’s AGM which included an increase from $1,000 to $2,000 for this award which will honour two students this year who have made a positive contribution to Vancouver Island University campus life through activism and community engagement.

The award will be given to two outstanding students ($1,000 each) who demonstrate exceptional citizenship within the University community. It is disbursed annually by the VIUFA Executive (through the VIU Foundation office) following deliberations on candidates nominated by faculty.

Nominations of students who fit the criteria are now open. Please click on the link below for terms of reference, nomination particulars and application.

This year’s deadline for nominations is Friday, March 2, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.
