This award was established in 2015 by the Governors of Mu Alpha Theta to recognize a graduating member for their outstanding leadership skills and exceptional service to their Mu Alpha Theta chapter. In 2016, the winner will receive $4,000. The winner may choose to receive the $4,000 as a scholarship to his or her college or as a cash prize.
Each active chapter may submit only one nomination per year. The sponsor of the chapter will determine how the chapter’s nominee is selected, unless the sponsor is related to a possible nominee. In this case, a number of possible candidates should be submitted to another teacher or counselor at the school with each candidate’s qualifications so one member can be selected. The person selecting the nominee will also fill out the application form. (If not the chapter sponsor, a note should be included as to why they did not fill out the form.)
How to Nominate A Student
The application should be submitted along with the student's offical transcript from the school. You can download the application here.
