Warwick's students are amongst the most active in the country, with thousands taking part in and running student societies, volunteering through Warwick Volunteers, taking an active role in their learning through the SSLC system and much, much more. Some of our students, however, are truly exceptional. Not only do they excel academically, but they manage to find the time to campaign for good causes, raise enormous amounts of money for charities, start small business, and work with local charities.
The University’s Outstanding Student Contribution Award (OSCA) aims to recognise these achievements.
The activity for which students are nominated does not need to have been over their entire time at Warwick, nor a long-term commitment. Students may be nominated for one particular item which has contributed significantly to the community. We seek to celebrate individuals whose efforts have made a difference, regardless of duration of the activity.
The Benefactors OSCA is generously funded by donations from the University’s supporters to reward exceptional achievements by Warwick students. These OSCAs will be given to students who have made an outstanding contribution to the University community (academic or otherwise), or to the external community through a Warwick initiative (eg. Warwick Volunteers, Warwick in Africa). If a nomination falls under this category, it will automatically be considered for a Benefactors OSCA - the nomination process is the same.
The closing date for nominations is Monday 9th May 2016.
