Cavanaugh Community Volunteer Award
One Cavanaugh Community Volunteer Award is given each year to a University of Nevada, Reno graduating undergraduate or graduate student with a record of outstanding community service work. The award winner will receive an award check ($1,000, less applicable taxes) at the Honor the Best Ceremony.
Eligibility and nominations
To be eligible, you must be a graduating undergraduate or graduate student with a record of outstanding community service work, not for academic credit, during your years as a college student.
Nominations are solicited in early spring each year from University of Nevada, Reno faculty and staff. The nomination package should include a formal nomination letter, a CV, and three support letters, at least one from a University of Nevada, Reno faculty member. A selection committee containing representatives from the provost's office, student services and faculty members will meet to review and discuss the nominees and arrive at a winner.
2019 Award Nominations will be accepted beginning in January 2019. The deadline for nominations will be Friday, February 15, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. Late nominations will not be considered.
Nominations should be submitted to Alissa Mortensen.
