Graduating Student Awards
Each year, multiple St. Jerome's University graduating students are recognized for academic excellence and contributions to student life and community-building. Nominations are submitted by the SJU community. A student requires only one nomination using the "Nominate Now" form below to be considered for all of the Graduating Student Awards - the Zach Ralston Award, the University Life Award, and the Community Contribution Award.
 
In order for a student to be considered for a Graduating Student Award, a complete nomination package must be received by the deadline established for each year. The 2022 award process has now been completed. 
 
 
Zach Ralston Award

The Zach Ralston Award is awarded to a student in the calendar year of his/her undergraduate convocation.  It is normally awarded to a St. Jerome's academically registered student; however, when a suitable candidate cannot be found within the academic community, consideration may be given to any student with an identifiable connection to the St. Jerome's community (i.e. resident or member of faith community).  Normally, only one award is presented per calendar year; however, up to two awards may be presented to equally deserving candidates.
