Governors’ Leadership and Service Award

All application materials must be submitted online no later than March 1, 2023.

This award was established in 2015 by the Governors of Mu Alpha Theta to recognize a graduating member for their outstanding leadership skills and exceptional service to their Mu Alpha Theta chapter.

The winner may choose to receive the $4,000 prize for this award as a scholarship or as a cash prize.

Each active chapter may submit only one nomination per year. The sponsor of the chapter will determine how the chapter’s nominee is selected unless the sponsor is related to a possible nominee. In this case, possible candidates should be submitted to another teacher or counselor at the school with each candidate’s qualifications so one member can be selected. The person selecting the nominee will also fill out the application form. (If not the chapter sponsor, a note should be included as to why they did not fill out the form.)

The winner will be determined by our Governing Council and recipients' names will be posted to our website by 5:00 PM CT on May 1, 2023. A student who wins this award is not eligible for any other named award, i.e. Kalin Award or Andree Award, although they are eligible for all scholarships.
