Each year, every four-year degree-granting higher education institution in Illinois chooses ONE senior to receive the prestigious Lincoln Academy Student Laureate Award. Laureates are honored for their overall excellence in both curricular and co-curricular activities. Graduating seniors who have demonstrated leadership on campus are invited to self-nominate and apply for the award. To apply students will write a 500 word essay about their experiences at UIC and ask a professor, mentor, advisor, supervisor, colleague or other individual who can attest to the student's excellence to submit a nomination letter.
The UIC Lincoln Student Laureate will be invited and required to attend a ceremony on November 1, 2014 in the House of Representatives of the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois. Each of the Student Laureates will receive a Lincoln Academy Medallion and a financial award.
The application and information about submitting the nomination letter are available here: https://uofi.uic.edu/fb/sec/5662286
To be considered applicants must apply by Thursday, 2 October 2014.
