President's Student Employee of the Year Award

The President's Student Employee of the Year Award is given annually to an outstanding student employee who has made a positive impact on the university and has demonstrated an exceptional quality of work and commitment to the university’s purpose and core values.

Congratulations to the 2022 Student Employee of the Year Award recipients!

The winner receives a certificate and an award of $500, sponsored by the Office of the President. The UT Austin winner is entered in the regional competition sponsored by the Southern Association of Student Employment Administrators.

In addition, ten nominees are chosen as finalists and will receive an award of $100, sponsored by Texas Career Engagement.

Who is Eligible for Nomination?

Only students employed in hourly-paid non-academic and academic student jobs as well as Resident Assistants are eligible for this award. The Graduate School oversees awards for salaried Graduate Academic student employees.

Additionally, only student employees who are assigned to work approximately 240 hours between June 1, 2021 and May 31, 2022 are eligible for nomination.

Nomination Guidelines

Any staff member, faculty member, or student can nominate an eligible student employee for an award.

Award recipients are selected based on the quality of the nomination, and not on the quantity of nominations they receive. Nominations selected for an award will provide specific details about the student nominee and address how they have exceeded expectations and demonstrated an exceptional quality of work.

The Student Employee of the Year and finalists will be notified in March. They will be formally recognized in April as a part of National Student Employee Appreciation Week!
