Freshman Award

These $300 awards are intended to encourage incoming freshmen to Collins to engage in the community in multiple ways, by joining various existing student groups, by developing new initiatives, by the completion of a thoughtful Q project that builds community at Collins and/or by taking on a position of student leadership. Applicants and nominees are asked to submit a short statement (250-500 words) describing their involvement..

 

Retention Award

These awards are intended for current engaged Collinsites who plan to return to Collins next year. There are four $1000 awards and they are renewable as long as you are at Collins (so not all four are awarded to new recipients every year). The application deadline is Monday, Nov. 17, 2014. We plan to announce these awards before the Thanksgiving break so that recipients know they have received the award before Phase I of RPS contract renewal begins. Later applications will be considered if awards are still available. Applicants are asked to submit a short statement (250-500 words) describing their current and future Collins engagement.
