Edward T. Foote II Award for Excellence in Student Leadership
The Edward T. Foote II Award for Excellence in Student Leadership is an annual award that recognizes one outstanding senior at the University of Miami who has best demonstrated exemplary involvement, leadership, and achievement in his or her college experience.

Vice President's Award for Service
The Vice President's Award for Service is an annual award that recognizes one outstanding male and one outstanding female at the University of Miami who have best demonstrated exemplary community service in their college experience. The Vice President's Award for Service was initially established in 1991 to recognize members of the student body, faculty, and staff for extraordinary service to the Greater Miami Community. Today, the award recognizes seniors graduating during the Spring, Summer, or Fall term who demonstrate service and involvement on campus and in their communities. Special consideration will be given to students with involvement through the Butler Center for Service and Leadership.

The Robert Bates Cole Award for Volunteer Leadership
The Robert Bates Cole Award for Volunteer Leadership is presented annually by the Lennar Foundation to a University of Miami student. He or she exemplifies the characteristics of integrity and dedication through exceptional, committed, and unassuming participation in community service activities. The Robert Bates Cole Award for Volunteer Leadership is presented annually to a current full-time student at the University of Miami with sophomore (30-59 credits) academic standing. This award includes a $2,000 scholarship presented by the Lennar Foundation.


Sherwood Weiser Memorial Fund for Student Community Service
The Sherwood M. Weiser Memorial Fund for Student Community Service has been established in honor of our late trustee, Sherwood M. Weiser, a distinguished business and civic leader whose lifelong dedication to community service had a significant impact at the University of Miami and throughout South Florida. Students chosen will possess a combination of character and compassion along with exhibiting a strong commitment to community service while at UM. The Sherwood M. Weiser Memorial Fund for Student Community Service will provide $2,000 scholarships to two female and two male current full-time students at the University of Miami with junior academic standing.
