Rudy Heinzl Award
The Rudy Heinzl Award of Excellence has been presented annually since 1997 in recognition of an outstanding one-year achievement which improves the lives of students at McMaster University. The names of recipients are recorded on a permanent plaque displayed in the foyer of the MSU Office, and recipients of the award receive a framed colour photograph of the Edwards Archway bearing an engraved plate.
History of the Award

Through this award the MSU honours his contribution by commemorating the work of others who have similarly contributed to the well-being of McMaster’s student community.
Any member of the McMaster community is eligible for the award. No more than one (1) award is granted each year.
