Feds Leadership Awards




Every year the Federation of Students recognizes up to 10 student leaders on the University of Waterloo campus through the Feds Student Leadership Awards. Recipients of the awards will have demonstrated exemplary leadership skills in various ways at the University of Waterloo and/or in the surrounding community. The winners are presented a certificate of distinction at the Feds Leadership Awards Banquet in the winter term.

Leadership Award Nominations

The applications will be reviewed to determine if the individual falls within the scope of one or more of the following criteria:

  1. Leadership in a student leadership position(s) in the Federation of Students;
  2. Service to the undergraduate students at the University of Waterloo; 
  3. Involvement and contributions to undergraduate student life within the Federation of Students and at the University of Waterloo.
