MISSOULA –

The University Center Student Involvement Network at The University of Montana is now accepting nominations for several awards recognizing students and student groups.

Members of the campus community are asked to submit nominations for the Outstanding Student Leader Award, the Sentinel Service Award and the Americans with Disabilities Act Award. All UM students are eligible to be nominated.

Based on leadership and service to the University, the Outstanding Student Leader Award is given to a student who exhibits ethical, creative leadership and promotes a positive campus climate while remaining in good academic standing. The recipient also may be eligible for an in-state tuition waiver.

Student groups that have made outstanding contributions to the campus and Missoula communities can apply for the Sentinel Service Award. The award recipient also will receive a $500 cash stipend.

The Americans with Disabilities Act Award recognizes students whose important contributions advance education and employment opportunities for people with disabilities at UM. Awardees continually set a high standard of excellence by honoring the importance of civil rights laws, using best quality practices and creating innovative solutions that support UM’s vision to create a completely accessible campus.

Criteria and applications for the three awards are available online at http://life.umt.edu/uc/ucsi/leadership/recognition_programs.php. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday, March 30.

For more information or to request a disability-related modification, call Maureen Ward, Student Involvement Network program coordinator, at 406-243-5527 or email maureen.ward@mso.umt.edu.
