Registration opened for Uniservitate Award 2024

In January, the Uniservitate Award 2024 will be launched, a global recognition of the best service-learning experiences (SL) in Catholic Higher Education.

All Catholic Higher Education Institutions, both university and non-university, that have developed or are developing SL projects and/or programs from January 2021 onwards are eligible to participate.

The Prize is endowed with a sum of 84,000 euros that will be distributed in prizes and special mentions in each of the seven regions that make up Uniservitate.

The nominated experiences will be analyzed in two instances by SL-qualified evaluators selected by those responsible for each Uniservitate Regional Hub. The evaluation will be supervised by the CLAYSS team, and by the coordination of the Uniservitate Programme. The winners in each region will be determined by a Regional Jury of experts.

For the first edition of the Uniservitate Award, in 2022, nearly three hundred projects developed by two hundred educational institutions worldwide were presented.

Projects, practices, courses or institutional programmes of solidarity service with the community, actively led by students, and intentionally articulated with academic content and research programmes, are eligible for these awards.

In addition to recognizing and making visible Catholic education institutions that best integrate students’ academic learning with solidarity service to the community, the Uniservitate Award seeks to find and highlight experiences that combine science and faith, academic excellence and concrete testimony of a socially committed institution.

The names of the winners will be published after June 2024. The awards will be presented during the V Uniservitate Global Symposium, scheduled for October in Rome, which will be attended by representatives of the winning projects as part of the Award.

Regarding this initiative, María Nieves Tapia, director of CLAYSS, stated that it is not a competition, but rather a meeting because, she added, “we are helping each other to learn from what each one did. Even in the smallest service-learning experiences we can find inspiration.”
