Undergraduate Achievement Award

As of September 1, nominations for the 2010-2011 Undergraduate Achievement Award will be open. All chapters whose chapter number ends in the digits 5-9 (see below) are encouraged to select one student for this $100 Award; selection criteria are left to the discretion of the local chapter but might focus on overall academic excellence, chapter leadership, outstanding public service, or, in the case of a sophomore or early junior inductee, as an encouragement award toward continued excellence.

The Award is not competitive beyond the local level. To name an awardee, chapter moderators should send the student's name and current mailing address to the Treasurer:

    Bob Dunston, TAK Treasurer
    Dept. of Religion
    University of the Cumberlands
    7989 College Station Drive
    Williamsburg, KY 40769


Upon receipt of this information, an Award check will be issued directly to the student. Notice of the selected student must come from the chapter faculty moderator, either via regular mail on signed letterhead or via e-mail from the faculty moderator's institutional address. No e-mails from private service providers such as Yahoo, Gmail, etc., will be accepted.

The current policy is to offer the award to half the chapters each year. In the academic year 2010-2011, chapters ending in the digits 5-9 will name an awardee; in the next academic year (2011-2012), chapters ending in the digits 0-4 will name an awardee. See the list here to know your chapter's number.
