Nominations are now being accepted for the Clauve Outstanding Senior Awards. As one of UNM's most coveted student awards, this award is presented to seniors who have performed well academically and made significant contributions to the campus community through their leadership and involvement.
The Clauve Award is named for Dean Emeritus Lena Clauve, a UNM music education teacher and the first Dean of Women. She left campus in 1961 but remained involved until her death in 1994 at the age of 98.
Students who wish to apply must be exemplary in both academics and leadership. Seniors at UNM who will graduate in the Spring or Fall 2021 semesters with a 3.0 cumulative grade point average are encouraged to apply.
To be considered, applicants must fill out the online application and obtain one letter of recommendation by March 7. Clauve recommendation letters may be written by faculty, staff, administrators, peer students, community members or alumni.
Usually, six to eight students are recognized at the April Recognition Reception.
