Student Leadership Awards


Leadership Award Applications open January 8, 2019.

Applications are due: February 5, 2019 by 4 p.m.

Seneca’s Student Services Department coordinates the Student Leadership awards, which are given annually to students in recognition of their leadership qualities in the classroom, on campus or in their community.

Leadership qualities may include outstanding contributions to student/campus life, leadership roles or excellence in academics. Some past award recipients have demonstrated their leadership on campus by: being a peer tutor for students in their program, assisting at Orientation, joining the Seneca Student Federation, attending leadership development workshops, volunteering for various events or starting a campus initiative. Outside of Seneca, students have demonstrated leadership through their involvement in organizations like United Way, Habitat for Humanity or their religious community, community centre or organizations or a cultural agency.  

Please note: Student Leadership Awards are not the same as other Seneca scholarships/bursaries awarded for financial need.

Staff References

All Student Leadership Awards require a staff reference or nomination. This reference can be completed by any Seneca staff or faculty member. Your reference should know that you’ve chosen them as a reference. We recommend you contact them BEFORE applying for a leadership award to make sure they’re comfortable with being a reference for you and are familiar with your accomplishments both inside and outside the classroom. You only require one staff reference for all applications.

If you are a Seneca Faculty or Staff member looking to nominate a student, please visit the Faculty/Staff Nominations Awards section.


Awards Ceremony

These awards are presented at the annual Student Leadership Awards Ceremony.
