Hofstra University, through a generous donation from the family and friends of Hofstra alumna Allison Kim Levy, offers two $1,500 awards along with a certificate of recognition, for good works within the community. Students, faculty, and staff of the University are eligible.
Examples of service include such activities as development of community programs (e.g., initiating food distribution programs for the needy; tutoring programs for underachieving children etc.); or volunteer service in community programs (e.g., coordinating volunteers to help in food distribution; helping families to have access to community services by providing public announcements); or direct service in the community to individuals with special needs-(e.g., reading for the visually impaired; in home behavior modification for the autistic child, etc.).
The program is administered through the Department of Psychology and awards are made on a yearly basis. This call for nominations is for work conducted during the 2016 calendar year and winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony of the National Honor Society in Psychology in May.
