The purpose of the Barrett-Fleming Community Involvement Awards is to recognize student community service.  This award will be issued annually, when merited, to full-time, or part-time undergraduate students enrolled in any program of study at Carleton University.

The Barrett-Fleming Community Involvement Awards aim to both encourage and provide incentives for students engaged in community involvement and most importantly, to reward and recognize these individuals for their high level of achievement.  These awards foster the ideal that students and society can benefit from community involvement as well as through the personal growth and community development that derives from such activities.

A minimum of two awards will be given annually – one to recognize service within the Carleton community, and one to recognize service beyond the Carleton community. Consideration will be given to the depth of involvement, level of responsibility, impact on the Carleton community/impact on the external community, and demonstrated personal growth of the individual.  Endowed in 2021 by Nancy Fleming (Barrett) BAHONS/75 and the late James Fleming BA/77.

Selection Process 

The recipients of this award will be selected by a selection committee. Each award consists of a monetary prize of $1,600, to be applied to the recipient’s student account and to be recognized as award recipients at the SOAR Student Leadership Conference.

To qualify for the award, students must be a full-time, or part-time undergraduate students enrolled in any program of study at Carleton University in good academic standing. Staff, faculty and non-Carleton University students are not eligible.

This award will not be used as a de facto prize for an existing student government position. If in any given year suitable candidates cannot be identified, the Selection Committee may choose not to make an award. Any unused funds will be held over to subsequent years. Should a surplus of funds occur then more than two awards may be given.
