The Ascent Award has been established to recognize the contributions of student organizations to the Georgia Regents University community. An Ascent Award Organization is any organization that has been chartered for more than two (2) academic years. The committee will consider the nomination based on the following criteria: organization activity since August 20, 2012; improvements; campus involvement; leadership development; programs/events (including number of events, quality of events, and target audience); membership recruitment and retention efforts; publicity and promotional efforts; fundraising; community service; and renewed contributions to co-curricular life at GRU
Organization awards may be submitted by a member of the chartered student organization being nominated or by their advisor.
Organizations that win the Ascent Award are not eligible to win the Mountaineering Award or the Horizon Award. Organizations are encouraged to apply for all awards for which they are eligible, however.
