Community Impact Award

Presented during the annual Student Conference since 2006, the Community Impact Awards recognize one outstanding undergraduate student service leader selected by each member campus. The award may honor an individual for multiple or diverse forms of engagement including: volunteer service, service-learning, policy work, community organizing, advocacy, internships, or campus leadership. All award winners should clearly demonstrate:

  • Deep commitment to partnering with others to address community issues
  • Outstanding ability to lead and inspire fellow students to engage
  • Tangible evidence of sustainable impact of his or her work

Community Impact Award winners are selected by each campus. Any full-time, undergraduate or graduate student at a member campus is eligible. 

Winners receive a certificate and small gift. They are recognized on stage at the CSNAP Student Conference and in the program, and the Compact prepares a press release highlighting their accomplishments. Impact Award honorees can also apply for a Marshall Alternative Break Scholarship.
