The Spartan of Promise award is given to those who exhibit characteristics of a well-rounded student at UNCG and have a passion for service. Spartans of Promise are honored at the Alumni of Distinction Awards Dinner in October and later participate in UNCG Alumni events throughout the duration of the academic year.

Spartans of Promise must exemplify:

  • Strong involvement in campus activities
  • Proven leadership in service activities
  • Passion for UNCG


  • A minimum 3.0 GPA
  • Completion of 90 credit hours, at least 30 of which are completed at UNCG

If you know a senior who fits the criteria, nominate them now! Email your letters of recommendation to Dorian Thompson at drthomp2@uncg.edu. Students who are recommended by faculty, student organizations, or staff will be contacted by email and encouraged to submit the student application form, which can be found here. The deadline for the student application and recommendation submissions is Sept. 2, 2017.
