The award is given annually to a currently-enrolled international student for outstanding scholarship, leadership and service in the field of international education. Specifically, the selection committee seeks to identify students who have been the most actively involved in international programs and/or activities on campus while maintaining their academic status. 

Nominations are due to International Student Life by 5 p.m. on March 23. All nominations must include a cover letter detailing the student’s eligibility as well as the nominee’s résumé and UGA student ID number.
