Students Helping Student Awards 2019

24 June 2020

Are you a peer mentor? Apply for the 2020 Students Helping Students Awards

Every year, Deakin recognises the contributions of the many trained mentors and student leaders who share their unique knowledge and skills with their peers. Mentors as well as mentees enjoy a sense of belonging and community as a result of the mentoring experience. Learning happens through dialogue and exchange in academic, practical and social ways. Both formal and incidental learning happens everywhere at Deakin, across campuses and in the Cloud.

If you’ve held a student mentor role at Deakin this year, you are encouraged to apply for the 2020 Students Helping Students (SHS) Awards.

Am I eligible to enter the SHS Awards?

Any Deakin student who has held a role within an SHS program at Deakin within the last 12 months, is eligible to apply for an award. Whether you are an experienced mentor or just starting out on your mentoring journey, you are able to apply.

Past applicants, regardless of outcome, are also welcome to apply again.
