Harpur Foundation Awards
Call for Nominations
Once again it is time to identify the most deserving graduating Harpur College seniors for several Foundation awards to be conferred at Commencement. You may nominate students for these awards by writing a brief memo describing how their achievements match the criteria for the award. In addition, all nominations must be accompanied by the student's resume and at least one Harpur College faculty recommendation letter (if a Harpur faculty member is the nominator, that letter will stand as the faculty recommendation letter). Nominations will be accepted from students, faculty and staff; student self-nominations will also be accepted. All nominations should be submitted electronically to Diane Horvath (firstname.lastname@example.org) and are due by Friday, March 14, 2014.
