Jenzabar Foundation Student Leadership Awards

The Jenzabar Foundation has opened the nomination process for its third annual Student Leadership Awards. The awards will honor ten student-led campus groups or activities that have made a significant impact serving others through service and philanthropic activities beyond their own higher education institutions. This year, the Jenzabar Foundation Student Leadership Awards will include a new Social Entrepreneur of the Year category, which will recognize one outstanding leader or organization committed to tackling social issues and promoting social entrepreneurship.

The Jenzabar Foundation is accepting submissions from institutions of higher education, nonprofit organizations, religious organizations, and self-nominations from students for their community service or humanitarian efforts during the current or previous academic year. A $5,000 grant is included with the recognition to support the student or group's future humanitarian endeavors.

The first step in the submission process is joining the Jenzabar Foundation Community Network and using the referral code: SLA2010. Once registered, applicants will be advised of the submission procedure.
