Jenzabar Foundation Announces Call for Nominations for Higher Education Student Leadership Awards
Deadline: March 31, 2009

The Jenzabar Foundation (http://www.jenzabar.net/), the philanthropic arm of Jenzabar, Inc., has opened the nomination process for its second annual Student Leadership Awards. The awards will recognize seven student groups — and their respective leaders — that have demonstrated a commitment to making a difference through community service and/or humanitarian endeavors either in the United States or globally. This year the foundation is expanding the awards criteria to include submissions from non-profit organizations as well as self-nominations from students at educational institutions around the world.

The 2009 Student Leadership Awards will provide grants in recognition of achievements in the following categories: local community support to individuals or groups that are underserved by existing community resources; international humanitarian efforts; campus ministry programs that reach beyond campus boundaries; education outreach to groups or individuals not enrolled in the institution; environmental protection, natural resource management, alternative energy promotion or climate/habitat awareness; health care provision or awareness; and issue advocacy targeted to local, state, or federal governments.

Nominations are open for students enrolled in any accredited institution of higher education and can be submitted by individuals, educational institutions, or nonprofit organizations that have produced work consistent with the foundation’s mission to recognize and support the good works and humanitarian efforts of student leaders serving others across the globe.

Criteria and nomination process information are available at the Jenzabar Foundation Web site.
