Call for nominations: Pari Prerana Award
The Indiana University Graduate and Professional Student Organization and the University Graduate School are proud to announce the Indiana University Bloomington Pari Prerana Award, 2009. Deadline for application: Friday, March 20, 2009.
The Pari Prerana (Essence of Inspiration) Award at Indiana University was established through the support of sponsors from the Indian subcontinent. The award strives to recognize and honor students who have overcome a severe physical, cognitive or other health related challenge/s and have demonstrated academic excellence.
The objective of this award forum is to provide university and community wide recognition to such students and their narratives (life stories and experiences) through various local media outlets. The award’s goal is to contribute to building the self esteem, courage and competitive spirit among graduate students with challenges and to further Indiana University’s mission.
All advisors, graduate students, faculty and professors at Indiana University, Bloomington, are invited to nominate those students that they feel deserve special recognition for exemplary courage and determination under adverse and challenging conditions.
