Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center

Edward E. Carlson Student Leadership Award

The AwardEddie

From 2002 through 2019, the Carlson Center recognized eighteen individual students for their outstanding civic leadership with the Carlson Student Leadership Award. Named for one of Seattle’s foremost civic leaders, the Edward E. Carlson, the award recognized individual students who demonstrated a strong commitment to public service, provided outstanding leadership in the community, and who were committed to continued creative civic participation.

To more closely align with our values around collaboration and overall student development, in 2020 we will no longer select an individual for recognition with this leadership award. Instead, we will transition to offering the Carlson Civic Fellowship as part of our CELE Summer Fellowships.
