2016 Lena Landegger Awards Application Now Available!

The application for the 2016 Lena Landegger Community Service Awards is now available. These awards were established by the Landegger family to recognize Georgetown University students for exceptional contributions to community service.

Dear Students, 
 
I am writing to inform you that the application for the 2016 Lena Landegger Community Service Awards is now available. These awards were established by the Landegger family to honor the memory of Lena Landegger and to recognize Georgetown University students for exceptional contributions to community service. Each year, twenty students are selected to receive the award at a dinner in Riggs Library in late spring.
 
All Georgetown University undergraduate students are eligible to apply; however, since the selection committee considers only service performed during the student’s undergraduate career, preference is given to third and fourth year students.
 
The application can be accessed at https://hoyalink.georgetown.edu/form/start/81249. In addition, you should ask an individual who is familiar with your service to write a recommendation on your behalf. Recommenders do not need to be affiliated with Georgetown University but they should not be students. Letters should come from those who can best describe the applicant’s service work, and be submitted in PDF format to landeggerserviceawards@georgetown.edu. The applicant’s name should be included in the subject line and the recommender’s title, organization, and contact information in the body of the email. Additional application guidelines and a supplemental instruction sheet for recommenders can be found at: https://hoyalink.georgetown.edu/organization/studentaffairs/documentlibrary. Please address questions to Sarah Marie Gresser at landeggerserviceawards@georgetown.edu.
 
Please note that the application and recommendation deadline is November 15th, 2015 at 11:59pm
 
Georgetown is a community which proudly reflects the Jesuit commitment to service and the Landegger Awards are an opportunity to recognize this commitment in a meaningful way.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Jeanne Fielding Lord
Chair, Landegger Awards Committee
