Student Awards & Recognition

IMI Awards

Our students are talented, ambitious and very accomplished. While pursuing their studies, many take on additional extra-curricular activities that only serve to enhance the lives of their fellow students and the wider community. While the students don't assume these responsibilities for personal gain, we want to acknowledge their accomplishments formally through a range of available awards.
See list of 2020 Director's Circle & IMI Award Recipients here.
