As such, our aim is to honor and recognize outstanding graduating students of African descent each year. For this award year, the UCABA Board is seeking students who have displayed outstanding potential for future success, positive personal character, and exceptional contributions and involvement in the student, academic, Chicago, or world community. The winners will be announced at the OMSA 5th Year Anniversary of 5710 S. Woodlawn Celebration on Saturday, June 8, 2013 and honored at the Black Alumni Brunch on Sunday, June 9, 2013.
A review committee composed of members of the UCABA Board and staff members of the University will review applications and select the recipients. To be considered for the award, each student must submit a cover letter and two letters of support: one of which must be from a University faculty member, staff member, or alumnus of the University, and one from a peer. Documents must be submitted electronically (in PDF format) to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5pm on Friday, May 17, 2013.
