SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence (CASE)

This award requires university nomination or interview and cannot be applied to directly. Students must work with the Office of Fellowships and Scholarships and meet university deadlines.

Overview

The SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence acknowledges students for outstanding achievements that have demonstrated the integration of SUNY excellence within many aspects of their lives such as academics, leadership, campus involvement, community service, or the arts. Students are asked to provide descriptions of their awards, honors, accomplishments and/or achievements in at least three of the primary areas. It is the highest honor bestowed upon a student by the University.

Deadline

December 1

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must:

  • Have a GPA of 3.5 and above
  • Be a current or recent undergraduate or graduate student
  • Have graduated or plan to graduate between Summer 2023 and Spring 2024 (for the 2023 application)

How to Apply

Application closed

This application will re-open in Fall 2024.

Students must complete the online self-nomination and submit a current resume/CV.

The nominations will be forwarded to an internal campus nomination selection committee which can recommend up to 15 candidates to SUNY for consideration. All applicants will be notified by the end of January as to whether they have been recommended as a campus nominee for this SUNY award. Campus nominees’ application materials will be forwarded to SUNY for consideration. UB-recommended nominees will be notified directly by SUNY of their award status, and will be recognized at a ceremony in Albany in April if selected by SUNY as a recipient of the Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence.
