Community Engagement and Service Learning Education Awards

Honors Day Awards provides an opportunity for students to be recognized by peers and faculty for work they are passionate about – in addition to their chosen health profession – that extends well beyond the curriculum of their classes.

Students awarded at Honors Day are recognized for development in leadership roles in class and in student clubs – extracurricular activities they take on in spite of an already rigorous academic schedule.

The awards consist of plaques and cash scholarships made possible through donations from community and medical organizations, physicians, individuals and pharmaceutical companies. You can view all of the awards given here.
