With over 100 Societies in NUIG you are sure to find one for you.
Tuesday April 26th is the deadline to enter for your ALIVE Award, you do this by logging into yourspace.nuigalway.ie to answer the questions and fill in your hours, if you are on a committee it will default to that.
As societies also have to complete your part we would implore all individuals to get their application finished by Monday.
Your members and committee members who volunteer at least 10 hours with you can apply for an ALIVE cert with you.
In your dashboard, you go to the ALIVE link on the right-hand side in the Apps Section.
Committee members & members applying
Committee member's details are added automatically to the award in their personal yourspace dashboard yourspace.nuigalway.ie
Non-committee members choose Type: Society and then your society from the drop-down list and then add their role. (Committee members you do not need to do this)
NOTE: You can get an ALIVE Cert without the Society Leadership Award but not the other way around.
Applying in yourspace.nuigalway.ie, if you are on a committee the role and society will automatically be there for you, if you volunteer with a society you need to add this in.
