Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

September 11, 2018

Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, ASU vice president of cultural affairs and chair of the ASU Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee, is soliciting nominations for the 2019 ASU Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Student Servant-Leadership Award. This year’s theme is "Find Your Voice."

The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will present a Servant-Leadership Award to an ASU student at the MLK Breakfast on Jan. 24, 2019.

Servant-leadership is a practical philosophy, which supports people who choose to serve first, and then lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions. Servant leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions. Servant-leadership encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening and the ethical use of power and empowerment.

The committee is requesting help in identifying a student servant-leadership awardee. The student must be currently enrolled full-time, exemplify the ideals of servant-leadership and have a track record of commitment through volunteer service. Candidates may submit his or her resume with this form. Letters of recommendation are acceptable, but no more than two. Self-nominations are encouraged.

The ASU MLK Jr. Committee will provide a $1,500 scholarship to the awardee to be used toward his or her educational costs. This scholarship is available to ASU full-time undergraduate or graduate students. The winner must be a full-time student during the spring 2019 semester.

All applications will be reviewed and three finalists will be selected. Finalists will have 30-minute interviews with the committee on the morning of Oct. 12. Finalists will be contacted for their interview. The awardee must be able to attend the breakfast on Jan. 24.

Nominate yourself or another student here.

Please submit nominations by close of business Oct. 1, through campus mail to Michelle Johnson at MC 0205, fax 480/965-7663 or scan and e-mail to mmjcap@asu.edu.
