Collegiate Awards

Our collegiate chapters make positive impacts on their schools and local communities through philanthropy and service, scholarship and leadership.


INDIVIDUAL COLLEGIATE AWARDS

 
THE ESTELLE LEONARD OUTSTANDING SENIOR AWARD
This award honors a senior among those nominated from each chapter who best represents the ideals of Alpha Chi Omega. This real, strong woman is actively involved in her chapter, on her campus and/or in her community. She clearly lives the values of Alpha Chi Omega and is the personification of what it means to be an Alpha Chi Omega. 
 
THE AMY DUBOIS RIETH EMERGING LEADER AWARD
This award honors a newly initiated Alpha Chi Omega among those nominated from each collegiate chapter. This real, strong woman will have been initiated no more than 12 months prior to being nominated. An emerging leader who has embraced the ideals of Alpha Chi Omega, the recipient of this award has shown great potential to serve her chapter, her campus and/or her community – and is already taking steps to actively participate. 
 
OUTSTANDING COLLEGIATE ADVISOR AWARD
This award is presented annually to the Alpha Chi Omega advisor (chapter advisor or position advisor) who embodies a real, strong woman. The selected recipient guides and supports the chapter, serving as a role model to chapter members while encouraging innovation and motivation. Chapters, chapter advisory boards or province collegiate chairs may submit nominations.
 
COLLEGIATE CHAPTER ADVISORY BOARD AWARD
This annual award is presented to the Alpha Chi Omega advisory board(s) demonstrating the most effective leadership to a collegiate chapter or chapters. For consideration, chapters and chapter advisory boards must complete the application and provide a letter of support from both the province collegiate chair and a university official. If a chapter does not have a PCC, support from a university official will suffice.
 
OUTSTANDING FRATERNITY/SORORITY ADVISOR AWARD
This award is presented each year to a campus-based professional advising fraternity and sorority life at an institution with an Alpha Chi Omega chapter. This award honors an individual who supports and mentors the women of Alpha Chi Omega to seek the heights.
