Nominate a female student with a philanthropic spirit

Student to be recognized at the Women Helping Women event

Monday Feb 03, 2014

Do you know a female IU Northwest student who has devoted countless hours to improving the community? A woman who exemplifies community-based engagement? A woman who is passionate about helping others?

If so, let us know! We want to know about the emerging student leader who is making a difference, not necessarily on the IU Northwest campus, but out in our COMMUNITY!

Indiana University’s annual event Women Helping Women: Honoring Student Volunteer Leadership, hosted at IU Northwest this spring, is looking to recognize up to three IU Northwest female students whose philanthropic and charitable spirit shines bright in Northwest Indiana.

The selected students will be personally acknowledged by IU’s first lady, Laurie Burns McRobbie, and other IU leaders. Each recognized student will be awarded with a monetary donation for the students’ primary volunteer organization.

Please note, self-nominations are accepted.

Eligibility Criteria

  • A female student currently enrolled at IU Northwest
  • The student must be involved in an organization in Northwest Indiana (campus involvement is not a consideration for this award). Community organization examples: The Arc of Northwest Indiana, Boys & Girls Club of Northwest Indiana, or American Red Cross of Northwest Indiana.

How to Nominate?

Tell us, in 250 words or less, how she gives back to Northwest Indiana, making our community stronger, healthier and more vibrant. Please note, this student MUST be involved in an organization outside of IU Northwest.

Nominations must include:

  • Student’s name
  • Student’s major
  • Student’s primary volunteer organization
  • A summary of how the student gives back and what makes her worthy of being recognized for her efforts
  • Nominator’s name and relationship to student

Send your nomination to no later than Friday, Feb. 14.

Notification will be sent by Friday, Feb. 21 to those students who have been selected.
