How to Fill Out and Submit the SLIS Award Application

Follow the instructions below to successfully complete and submit your application to nominate yourself or someone else for the SLIS Graduating Student Awards.

You will need the latest version of Adobe Acrobat to download and complete this form online.

You may apply for / nominate students for as many awards as you wish. Please submit a separate application for each award you are applying or nominating for, and make sure to drop it into the correct drop box.

  1. Click to OPEN the SLIS Award Application [PDF].
  2. Do a FILE/SAVE AS to your computer desktop, and rename the Award Application as follows: [YOURLASTNAME_YOURFIRSTNAME_STUDENTIDNUMBER_short name of award].pdf. Select the correct SHORT NAME for the Award from this list. If you are nominating a student, use the STUDENT'S LAST NAME AND FIRST NAME in the filename, not your own. If you are nominating a student and do not know the student's SJSU ID#, it is okay to omit it from the filename.
