Nominations Open for Lincoln Academy Student Laureate Award

The Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs is now accepting nominations for the Lincoln Academy of Illinois Student Laureate Award.

Each fall, an outstanding senior from each of the four-year degree-granting institutions of higher learning in Illinois is awarded the Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement Award and thereby becomes a Student Laureate of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois.

In the spirit of Lincoln, Student Laureates are honored for their leadership and service in the pursuit of the betterment of humanity and for overall excellence in curricular and extracurricular activities. The student must be a senior with no less than a 3.0 cumulative and major grade point average.

The award recipient will attend a special virtual ceremony with the Lincoln Academy of Illinois. They will also be presented with the Lincoln Academy Student Laureate Medallion, a certificate of achievement and the Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement award in person, by Dean Stetz.

Please submit your nomination online here.

Nominations are due by Friday, September 9, 2022. Please direct any questions to Jackie McGhee at
