Hemenway Public Service Award

The Dole Institute of Politics established the Robert Hemenway Public Service Award in May 2009 to honor the 16th Chancellor of the University of Kansas upon his retirement. Senator Bob Dole made the announcement of the award at the 2009 Dole Lecture. The award is given annually to a junior man or woman who has demonstrated a commitment to making a difference for KU students, and furthering the idea of service on campus and within the community. The overriding criterion for this award is commitment to public service with demonstrated leadership. There is no GPA requirement. This award goes to a high-profile student leader, who is respected by peers and  is concerned with strengthening civic life at the University of Kansas.

Applications for this award are being accepted through April 27, 2023. Click on the links below to access the application and flyer for more information.
