Recognize a first- or second-year student who exemplifies Blue Hen values
Nominations are open now through April 15 for the Seitz Award, celebrating outstanding first- or second-year University of Delaware students. Coordinated through Student Life by the Office of the Dean of Students, this annual award recognizes a first year or second year student who embodies the student-created “We Are Blue Hens” values statement.
The fund for the George and Margaret Collins Seitz Award was established in 1954 at UD by Margaret Seitz to honor the memory of her mother and father. This annual recognition, which includes a $1,500 award, is presented each spring to a first-year or second-year student who exemplifies outstanding character by demonstrating and encouraging in others the "We Are Blue Hen" values of respect, openness, innovation, engagement, and mentorship. The full “We Are Blue Hens” values statement is available online.
Nominees must be matriculated first-year or second year students in good academic and disciplinary standing who plan to continue at UD. They may be from any major, may live on or off campus, and are not required to demonstrate financial need. The award winner will be chosen by a faculty/staff/student committee and announced prior to commencement.
All faculty, staff, and students may submit nominations online through April 15, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. For further information, please visit: https://delaware.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bm7CpC7txIYGtQ9
