Leadership award nominations sought by Women’s Society

As a way of thanking graduating women, The Women’s Society of Washington University established a leadership award in 1998.

Each year since, the Women’s Society has recognized one or more graduating seniors who have made a significant contribution to the University during their undergraduate years and have demonstrated the potential for future leadership.

The Women’s Society is seeking nominations for a student leader who fits the selection criteria to receive this year’s award. There is no limit to the number of nominations.

The criteria include: being a full-time senior woman student; having a minimum 3.0 GPA; displaying noted excellence in a chosen pursuit that has contributed significantly to the University community (co-curricular or community-service activity, new project or program, original piece of work); owning a record of demonstrated service to others; and showing recognized leadership and exceptional potential for future leadership.

Since its founding in 1965, the Women’s Society has tapped the talents of women in the St. Louis community by providing on-campus educational, leadership and service opportunities.

This award is in keeping with the society’s mission to foster leadership. It provides a $500 grant, an engraved clock and public recognition at the May Eliot Honors event and at the society’s annual membership meeting.

The purpose of the Women’s Society is to promote and advance a reciprocal understanding of the needs and purposes of the University and the community, and to render volunteer services to the University and its students.
