2018 NASPA Region IV-East Awards


Friday, September 7, 2018 at 5:00pm (central) Friday, October 5


Each year NASPA recognizes outstanding members by honoring individual professionals and programs with regional awards. To continue with this tradition, please consider nominating one of your Region IV-East colleagues or programs.

Descriptions for all State/Province and Regional Awards can be found on the Region IV-East Awards page. As you complete the form, ensure that you review and select awards based on if they are individual awards or program awards. Please review the criteria required in each section and provide the information as needed. Only one award can be selected per submission (unless the award allows for state/province winners as noted on the awards website). If you would like to submit an application for more than one award, you will need to submit a new form for each person/award. Award descriptions and specific award criteria are available online.  

Regional winners will be forwarded for consideration at the national level, as applicable. Each nomination should include a letter of nomination, letters of support, the nominee’s resume and contact information (when appropriate). Some awards or grants require additional documentation. Please review each award for individual criteria and requirements. The deadline is Friday, October 5 at 5:00pm (central). Winners will be notified in October and the presentation of the awards will take place at the Region IV-East Conference, November 11-13, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Award winners are strongly encouraged to attend the Regional Conference.
