Find your Focus Award
Focus Awards “focus” attention on particular aspects of RISE participation.
They recognize and reward specialized excellence.
Sponsored by Northeastern colleges and schools, organizations and initiatives, and RISE, Focus Awards illustrate street-level commitment to the work that inspires you.
How to be Considered
There is an extra step to be considered for most Focus Awards.
Carefully review the descriptions of the various Focus Awards, fill out the registration form, and thoughtfully answer the questions for each award you are interested in and eligible for.
Then, and only then, will you be eligible for one (or more) Focus Awards.
You may apply for more than one Focus Award. Apply for all that you are eligible for!
Just make sure to complete the Focus Awards Registration Form by the stated deadline.
When to Celebrate
Focus Awards winners are announced at the RISE Awards, 3:00 – 5:00pm, on the day of RISE. Finalists will be notified via email prior to the ceremony.
