Nominating Students for Premier Awards

Please help identify students that represent the best of UNA! Our experience has been that one of most gratifying things to a student is to find out that faculty and staff believe they are smart, engaging, and a special student.

Here are some of the things we look for in applicants: 

  • A memorable student. That student who just stands out during class, asking questions, leading discussion, turning in thoughtful assignments.
  • Students engaged in research, attending academic conferences, studying abroad
  • Students that participate in their community, assume leadership positions, serves their community
  • Students that go beyond the basic requirements of a course and dig deeper into their discipline
  • Students who are making As in your courses!
  • Students who show the potential for graduate study and professional development

Please email the student to say that you believe they have the potential to be an applicant for premier national and international award, be sure to 'cc Dr. Matthew Price at and we'll take it from there!  Again, faculty are such an important part of an applicant's academic and professional journey that we need you to be on the lookout for the next scholarship recipient!
