Student Awards

Convocation Students

Each year at convocation, we recognize the notable students whose commitment to their studies and the MacEwan University community put them at the head of their class.

President's Medal for Academic Excellence and Student Leadership

The President’s Medal for Academic Excellence and Student Leadership is one of MacEwan University's highest student honours.

This distinguished award is presented to a graduating student with multiple areas of accomplishment. Recipients are academic achievers, student leaders and active members of their communities. They strive to make their university and the world a better place, and they set high personal standards in all that they do.

Graduating students from any program are eligible for the award, and anyone can submit a nomination—faculty, staff, administration, students and members of the external community. One medal may be awarded to a graduating student in a certificate or diploma program and one to a graduating student in a degree program. 

Nomination form and deadlines

If you know a graduating MacEwan University student who contributed to the betterment of both the university and student body while maintaining a high grade point average, we want to hear from you.
