Enterprise students, advisors, faculty and staff can nominate deserving candidates by submitting a nomination form starting February 2019. Nominations must be submitted by 5pm on Friday, March 29, 2019. Nominators may collect up to three letters of support from others to strengthen their nomination. Each support letter should be no longer than one page, single-spaced. Student nominees must be currently enrolled in the Enterprise Program in order to be considered for an award.

An awards committee comprised of faculty and staff involved in the Enterprise Program will review nominations and select winners based on how well they support the given award criteria.
