Thinking Forward Awards

The Thinking Forward: Leadership & Innovation in Marketing Award is given in recognition of the ability to "think forward" and lead the next generation of responsible citizens and marketing professionals.

This award is not for the student with the best grade point average or most leadership or volunteer activities, but rather for students who exemplify the best combination of outstanding qualities across four categories:

  • Academic achievements
  • Leadership experience
  • Volunteer activities and/or contributions to community and society,
  • Work experience

In order to apply students must be undergraduate marketing seniors or 2nd year MBA students within the Eller College. Applications are reviewed in late fall/early spring.
