Honour M Award
History of the Award
The Honour M, the highest award that the McMaster Students Union (MSU) bestows, has been presented annually since 1932 in recognition of outstanding leadership, volunteer service, contribution and/or special achievement in extra-curricular activities. Recipients of the award are admitted to the McMaster Honour Society.
A nominee’s contributions may have been rendered in such areas as university, student, or residence governments, departments, clubs, societies, charities, or athletics. Nominees must have completed at least two (2) years of MSU membership (i.e. two fall/winter academic years of enrolment in at least eighteen (18) units of undergraduate study) and shall normally be in the final year of their academic programme. A panel of student leaders, faculty, and a member of the Honour Society selects recipients of the award. Barring special circumstances, no more than three (3) awards are normally granted each year.
Nomination forms are available here:
Please attach a description of the candidate of no more than one (1) page in length explaining why he or she is a competitive candidate to receive the Honour M Award (i.e. what he or she has accomplished, not merely offices held). You should also obtain from the nominee a summary of no more than three (3) pages outlining the specific details of dates, organizations, and positions held by him or her as an MSU member in reverse chronological order. The selection committee may, at its discretion, request a third party contact to corroborate the biographical information.
Please email the completed package to firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday, February 3rd at noon.
