The President's Volunteer Service Award

In 2003, the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President’s Volunteer Service Award to recognize the important role of volunteers in America’s strength and national identity. This award honors individuals whose service positively impacts communities in every corner of the nation and inspires those around them to take action, too.

Michigan Technological University is an official certifying organization for The President’s Volunteer Service Award. Eligible students who record a qualifying number of verified community service hours on GivePulse in the 12 month period between Monday of Week 10 of consecutive Spring semesters will automatically be certified for recognition. 

PVSA recipients will be recognized at the annual Student Leadership Awards which is held the Friday of Week 13 each Spring Semester. The President’s Volunteer Service Award can be received more than once if the requirements are met and a qualifying number of hours are recorded.
