SAO Student Leader Awards

Student leaders define MIT.

They lay the foundations, build the governments, plan the events, and enrich the culture that is MIT.

The Student Leader Awards are here to make sure their hard work gets noticed.


Every spring, the Student Activities Office in collaboration with offices throughout the Division of Student Life honors select student leaders and student groups for their outstanding contributions to the MIT community. These awards are intended to recognize and honor their accomplishments and hard work while paying tribute to their efforts in developing community and student life at MIT.

Working with campus partners such as the Association of Student Activities, Copy Tech, Residential Life Programs, and the Office of Multicultural Programs we are able not only to recognize these recipients but also to support their future endeavors through resources and funding in the form of Student Leader Award Grants.

This year's awards will take place Friday, May 16, 2014 in Walker Memorial at 12pm.  

Award nominations are due by 5pm on Friday, April 18, 2014.  

The Student Leader Awards Committee will accept nominations from anyone!  Students, staff, faculty, coaches, and alumni, as well as self-nominations.  Questions? sla-info@mit.edu
