Criteria for CheggOrg Global Student Prize
Applicants for the Chegg.org Global Student Prize are selected on a rigorous set of criteria to identify extraordinary students throughout the world. The Academy will look for evidence of a combination of some or all of the criteria below:
- Firstly, Academic achievement: Academic endeavor is what defines a student, and applicants for the Global Student Prize will inevitably have a strong record of academic achievement. Although evidence of this is likely to include excellent grades in formal studies, it can also include a record of prizes won for academic or project work; research that has been published or won other recognition; an outstanding reference from a supervisor or professor (for example, outlining contributions made to group work or a seminar); grants and fellowships; or videos of high-quality scholarly presentations made by the candidate. Students will also be able to demonstrate that they have overcome obstacles to their academic growth and have persevered to fulfil their potential.
- Secondly, Impact on your peers: Strong communities are essential to a thriving society – and the exceptional students will be those who have made a mark on their student community and changed it for the better. This may include supporting other students to continue in their studies, tutoring and mentoring your peers, or participating in college access initiatives that encourage applications from individuals in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities. You may have helped other students tackle mental or physical health challenges; engaged in activism to support minority student groups; fundraised for a good cause; or simply carried out individual acts of support, courage, and generosity.
- Making a difference in your community and beyond: The student leaders of the 21st century will embody the society’s highest values, and as such they will get engage in promoting wider social change. Judges look for evidence of a demonstrable impact on wider society, which can be either local, national or international.
- Fostering global citizens: The future success of our society is entirely dependent on global citizens who can work together in the coming decades to solve the profound problems facing our world. Candidates will be passionate about the future of global co-operation, and may have shown this by working on joint projects with people in other countries (whether for pure research or for a practical aim), forging links between institutions, or taking part in exchanges. Candidates will have taken an active role in fostering cultural understanding, breaking down barriers, fighting ignorance on global issues, and using online platforms to share resources, information, and expertise. Their efforts may also have encompassed helping students in other countries to access education or improve its quality.
