Thank you for participating in the Saint Michael's Book Award program, which highlights individuals who exhibit the characteristics of an ideal Saint Michael's student. We invite you to nominate eligible juniors for this award based on their Academic Achievement: students attain mostly A's and B's in honors and AP classes and are inductees of the National Honor Society or equivalent honors organization; and their demonstrated Social Conscience: students show a sustained and sincere commitment to community service, issues of peace and justice and concern for others.
Book Awards are presented at your school's annual academic award ceremony this spring. If your award ceremony is held in the fall, we ask that you present the student(s) with the award prior to summer vacation to ensure that they will not be surprised when they receive Book Award information over the summer. The award may be presented by either a Saint Michael’s College alumnus or by your school's personnel. Award recipients will be presented with the autobiography First They Killed My Father, written by Saint Michael's alumna Luong Ung.
Book Award nominees must apply within our Early Action deadlines, November 1 or December 1. If accepted, nominees are considered for a Saint Michael's College Book Award Scholarship ranging from $5,000 to full tuition, depending on their academic achievements.
Please submit your nominations 3 weeks prior to your ceremony. If you have any questions, contact either MJ or Katherine at 802.654.3000, or email@example.com.
