Call for 2017 Alumni Awards Nominations

Alumni Awards
American University

Dear AU Friends,

Nominations for American University's Alumni Awards are now open, and we need YOU to nominate the best and brightest AU alumni!

We are counting on you - our most active and involved alumni – to help us recognize AU alumni who will make us proud. We want to hear from all corners of the world and from all pathways in life. Our alumni do amazing things, and we need your help to give them the recognition that they deserve.

The four award categories are:

- Neil Kerwin Alumni Achievement Award (the university's top alumni award, renamed for President Kerwin in 2016)

- Alumni Recognition Award (for broad community service)

- Alumni Eagle Award (for service to AU)

- Rising Star Award (recognizing alumni up to 10 years from graduation)

The deadline to nominate someone is Friday, May 5. Nominations require the completion of an online form and additional supporting statements.

I encourage you and those in your AU networks to nominate fellow alumni who you feel are deserving of one of these awards. If you have any questions, please get in touch with our AU contact, Isaac Thweatt, or feel free to reach out to me directly.

So many of our 120,000+ alumni are out there making a difference. Help us to recognize them for all that they do. We appreciate your help with this important task.
