The MSU Merit Scholarship Award is presented to recognize outstanding and valuable service to university, student, or residence governments, departments, clubs, societies, charities, or athletics. A nominee must be an MSU member who is not in the final year of an academic program.
The J. Lynn Watson Award for Community Service is presented by the McMaster Students Union and the Inter-Residence Council to the campus group that has made the greatest one-year contribution to charitable giving.
