Thank you for your interest in nominating an alumus/alumna for an award. Please complete this form and submit it to have your nomination considered. If you would like to send additional documentation later, please use our Contact Form to contact the Alumni Awards chair for an email address to send it to. Nominations must be received by midnight (EST) on March 31, 2020 to be considered.
Consider that while you know this nominee, chances are the members of the Alumni Awards Selection Committee do not, so include as much information as possible regarding her/his qualifications and accomplishments. Although they are not required, photographs and quotes from others involved with the alum/alumna work are encouraged. Also, if you are aware of other alumni who support the nomination of your candidate, please add them as supporting nominators to a single group nomination rather than submitting separate nominations.
You will be contacted if additional information or documentation is needed, and you might be asked to provide additional materials such as photographs, videos, etc., if your nominee is chosen for an award.
For additional information regarding each award, and its requirements, please visit the Alumni Awards page.
