Magnolia Awards: A Celebration of Student Leadership and Service

About The Magnolia Awards

The Magnolia Awards recognize outstanding student leadership efforts in the campus community. With awards ranging from demonstrated leadership in intramural sports to commitment to cultural education, these awards serve to acknowledge students for their dedication in the areas of leadership, diversity and community service.

These awards listed below are offered to Vanderbilt students during the spring semester.  Prospective applicants and nominees are encouraged to browse through this webpage to learn more about the awards that are being offered this year.  Please check back periodically as information will be updated.

Award finalists will be presented with their award at the annual Magnolia Awards ceremony.  They will be asked to RSVP and invite their peers to be a part of this momentous occasion.  Here are some highlights from last year’s ceremony.

Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff may RSVP today for the ceremony and are encouraged to include guests (non-Vanderbilt) on their reservation.
