CNS is committed to challenging and supporting our students both in the classroom and through opportunities such as national scholarships and experiential learning. 

The Second Year Excellence Award aims to identify the rising stars of CNS during their second year and provide avenues intended for select students, during their undergraduate career and after.


Do you know a second year CNS student who has demonstrated exceptional academic performance or who has gone above and beyond expectations during their time at UT?

Please nominate them for a Second Year Excellence Award! The nomination form below asks for a very brief (a paragraph is plenty!) description of the student's accomplishments. 

The deadline to submit a nomination is Monday, February 11th, 5pm

Nominations are now closed - please contact Becky Kester with quesitons


(Note: Students may not self-nominate for this award)


When and where will the awardees be recognized? 

Monday, March 11th in the SAC Ballroom, 4:00-5:30PM 

There will be brief remarks from college leadership followed by an opportunity for awardees to mingle with staff and faculty and visit a variety of booths with information about experience and leadership opportunities within the college. A booth map will be posted here as the event approaches!
