The GSA Honour Award was established by the GSA Council in 2001 in order to recognize those graduate students who have demonstrated outstanding commitment and dedication to Carleton, and the graduate community specifically. Nominators can be students, faculty, associations, on- or off-campus groups, administration, or alumni. While there is no cash component to this award, it is a great way to recognize deserving grads. Up to 4 awards may be handed out per year, normally in April. Applicants must be members of the GSA.

The application for the Honour Award is now closed. Applications will reopen in September 2022.
