  2. Send your letter to us at by Jan. 29, 2021, at 5:00 pm MT.
  3. We will recognize one undergraduate and one graduate student employee during National Student Employment Week in April 2021. Selected students will receive a prize from a local small business and be invited to participate in a DU student employment leadership panel. They could even be recognized by the National Student Employment Association!
