Non-Traditional Student/Adult Learner Awards

The goal of the Non-Traditional Student/Adult Learner Awards is to recognize the contributions of our undergraduate students ages 24+. These awards serve as an opportunity to acknowledge the positive impact this particular demographic makes within their academic departments, the Stony Brook community, and/or their local/global communities, all while balancing the responsibilities they may have outside of the classroom. Nominators must be the faculty, staff or supervisor of the student they are nominating.

Nominations are due no later than Friday, March 10th, 2017. These awards will be distributed in conjunction with the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society Induction on Saturday, April 22nd.

Nominees must:
Be matriculated undergraduates working towards a bachelors degree
Be 24+ years of age or older
Have a minimum GPA of 2.5
Be enrolled for both Fall 2016 and Spring 2017


Nomination categories are as follows:

Departmental Contributions:
Individuals who have demonstrated significant dedication to their academics. This could include their commitment both in and out of classroom, including but not limited to: classroom participation, research, internships, projects, etc.

Excellence in Leadership:
Individuals who have made significant contributions to the campus community, via student leadership. This category focuses on the student’s ability to “make their mark” as a Stony Brook student, in various capacities. Examples include, but are not limited to club involvement and/or leadership, peer education, on campus employment/internships, etc.

Outstanding Community Service:
Individuals who have made significant contributions in their local and/or global communities through service and volunteer work. Please note that this category is specifically geared towards contributions made off-campus.
