Ozanam Award nominations being accepted
The Department of Religious Studies seeks nominations for its annual Ozanam Award. Blessed Frédéric Ozanam was a professor of law and literature in nineteenth-century France. He started the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, an international non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor.
This award goes to a current Niagara student who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in BOTH academics AND service. Nominees must meet the following qualifications:
- be a junior or senior
- have at least a 3.5 GPA in their religious studies courses and a 3.0 GPA overall (they don’t have to be a REL major)
- be the kind of person who does ‘more’ in terms of volunteer work
Please email nominations to Dr. Brian Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org by TUESDAY, MARCH 8. In your message kindly include details about the nominee’s attributes and accomplishments. (We can confirm their GPA.) The winner will be honored at the Arts & Sciences Day of Recognition on April 22. Thank you.
