I was a recipient of an award previously; can I submit for a new one this year?

Students can submit for an award they have not previously received if they believe they meet the eligibility criteria.  

As a reminder, while the award program is open annually to students, a student may only receive a recognition award once. If previously awarded, they will not be invited to resubmit. However, the award never expires. There are five programs total and students with an award can qualify for another program if they were not previously awarded. For example, a previous awardee may be eligible for the first-generation program introduced in 2024.
