URSA Student Awards

The Ursa Awards were established in 2003 to recognize and celebrate our "Bear Stars," the student leaders of Phoenix College. Note: Ursa Major (Latin: Great Bear) and Ursa Minor (Latin: Little Bear) are constellations reflected in the northern sky, more commonly known as the big and little dippers.

Award Process: During the Spring Semester, college employees nominate students that merit recognition for their outstanding leadership and service to the campus or community. Students are only eligible for this recognition once.
