  • Strengthen public support for the global civic engagement movement in higher education

  • To be considered for the MacJannet Prize, programs first need to be nominated. Anyone can nominate a program - including their own. The programs must be based at Talloires Network signatory member universities. Nominations must be accompanied by a letter of support from the head of the university.
  • If your university is not yet a Signatory Member of the TN, you may submit a nomination. A letter of intent to join as a Signatory Member of the Talloires Network must be sent to by March 16th to be eligible for the prize.
  • A selection committee, including representatives of the Talloires Network and the MacJannet Foundation as well as international higher education community engagement experts, will review nominations and identify the finalists.
  • Finalists will be contacted and asked to provide additional information, including contact information for faculty, students, and community members involved with the program. In some cases phone interviews may be requested.
  • The selection committee will then deliberate and select one First Prize, one Second Prize, and one Third Prize winner.
