Volunteer Service Awards

President's Volunteer Service Award

The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition.

We encourage you to take a look around, be inspired and take positive action that changes the world. For more information about this national program, please visit the President's Volunteer Service Award Website.

Individual Award Criteria

If you as an individual (Student, Faculty, or Staff Member) have served a minimum of 100 hours of unpaid service over the past year, you may qualify for the national President’s Volunteer Service Award.
