CSSS Persistence Award
Persistence: firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficult or opposition.

Each new course brings its own unique challenges. This sometimes leads to students retaking a course because they are unhappy with the result. However, rather than as a failure, this should be taken as an opportunity to better yourself as students can gain new skills which will help them succeed in the future. The CSSS Persistence Award recognizes the dedication and grit students must have to retake a course and what they can learn from this experience. The recipient of the CSSS Persistence Award will be given $850. The deadline for submission for the CSSS Persistence Award is is February 8, 2021 and finalists will be notified on March 1, 2021.

Finalists will be asked to interview and share their experience with the CSSS's VP Academic (Abhi Kurusetty) and Awards Officer (Alexandra Schroeder).
