On-Campus Nomination

Some of the most competitive awards require an on-campus nomination. What that looks like varies according to each award and how many other students apply, but in every case, it means submitting your application before the official deadline so that a Selection Committee can review your materials, offer feedback, and invite you to an interview if needed.
