Ebenezer D. Bassett Student Achievement Award

"We want to challenge unhealthy images of college men by showcasing men who exemplify acceptable standards of conduct and virtue."

The Ebenezer D. Bassett Student Achievement Awards celebrate the accomplishments and achievements of male CCSU students who make healthy and meaningful contributions to society. These awards expand the definition of student success by highlighting personal attributes that support men's health, retention, and graduation, as an effort toward closing the gender achievement gap in US colleges.

Central Connecticut State University's Man Enough Support Initiative proudly hosts the annual HEALTHYfellows Ebenezer D. Bassett Student Achievement Award Ceremony. A series of achievement honors are awarded at the ceremony. There are two separate and distinct processes for nominating a student for each of the honors.

The Ebenezer D. Bassett Student Achievement Award and the Legacy Medal are two distinguished recognitions given out annually, by the HEALTHYfellows and Man Enough Support Initiative Alumni Committee. The awards are presented to male students at CCSU and young men throughout the state of Connecticut who exemplify Ebenezer D. Bassett's Legacy Virtues. Secondly, the Ebenezer D. Bassett Scholarship is awarded by the Ebenezer D. Bassett Memorial Committee at the Bassett Student Achievement Awards Ceremony.

All CCSU faculty, staff, students, and administrators are invited to nominate students who meet the criteria in the attached Nomination Form.
