Each year in cooperation with the National Student Employment Association (NSEA), the Financial Aid Office sponsors an annual “Student Employee of the Year Award”. A memo is sent to all campus employers every January with details regarding: when National Student Employment Week will be observed, eligible terms of employment, selection criteria, awards, and the time frame in which to submit the nomination form.

Student employees are crucial to daily activities at SIUC and make valuable contributions throughout the year.  This award spotlights one extraordinary student employee on the SIUC campus; however recognition is given to each student who receives a nomination from their campus employer! 

Both undergraduate and graduate students, employed in the student employment program, are eligible for the award if they meet the award criteria. Each department may nominate only one student employee. If you have a student employee of whom you are particularly proud, you are encouraged to complete the Nomination Form when National Student Employment Week is announced in January.  

From all nominations, the SIUC Student Employee of the Year will be selected and announced during National Student Employment Week every April. 

Other institutions throughout the country also conduct similar competitions.  The SIUC Student Employee of the Year will represent the University at the state competition, with the possibility to advance to the National level competition!
