CORS Student Chapter Recognition

(Silver-, Bronze-, or Gold-level Certificate)


Every year, CORS recognizes the contributions of active CORS student chapters in serving the society, through certificates at bronze, silver, or gold levels. These certificates recognize the efforts of the members of the student chapters in promoting operations research in the student membership by organizing events related to the scope of CORS, both at the local and national levels. Awardees will be acknowledged during the annual CORS Conference and certificates will be awarded to successful chapters.


Any official student chapter of CORS can apply to receive recognition at the appropriate level.
The application must be submitted by the president of the local student chapter.
Selection Criteria

The CORS Student Chapter Recognition is non-competitive, and three levels of certificates will be issued to qualifying chapters based on the following criteria:

Bronze level: for demonstration of an active and growing student chapter
Silver level: for continuing contribution to the local chapter through multiple local events per year
Gold level: for exemplary contribution to the local chapter and broader CORS society

CORS Student Member Leadership Award

Every year, CORS recognizes the outstanding service contributions of individual CORS student members to their local student chapter and the society. This award is a showcase of exemplary dedication to promoting the field of operations research and the CORS society. Awardees will be acknowledged during the Annual CORS Conference.
