What are the ESN STARawards?
The STARawards are an initiative of the Erasmus Student Network aimed at the recognition and appreciation of the work our member organisations do in a span of one year. Each year our local and national organisations can submit their initiatives, activities, events, projects, programmes, and campaigns across several categories. The chosen applications are awarded a certificate signed by the President of ESN International. This certificate can be used for advocacy purposes towards the universities or other stakeholders and/or as a motivation booster for the volunteers.
How are the applications evaluated?
The application consists of a brief description of the initiative/ activity/ event/ project/ programme/ campaign focusing on the core idea behind it, the way that idea was executed, desired and reached outcomes and the impact on the designated target group. The submissions are then evaluated by a jury of volunteers and experts in the field of the category. Each category consists of the top three places, as well as honourable mentions.
