Seitz Award nominations open now

Award recognizes a first- or second-year student who exemplifies 'We Are Blue Hens' values

Nominations are open now through May 3 for the Seitz Award, celebrating outstanding first- or second- year students at the University of Delaware. Coordinated through the Division of 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.

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 May 3, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
