Alumni Award Nomination

Please read through each of the award categories and choose the award you think the nominee should receive. When filling out the nomination form, please be sure to provide as much information as possible on why the nominee should receive that specific award. Resumes and supporting documents are strongly encouraged. 

Judging is done by the Alumni Awards Committee of Kent State University. The committee will review and make determinations on the nominations for all the awards. The KSU Alumni Association reserves the right to suggest alternate awards based on the nominee’s qualifications and experience.

A Kent State University employee may be nominated for an alumni award no sooner than five years after the individuals separation from KSU as an employee. Consideration of eligibility, accomplishments and service for any given award shall be for the time period after separation from the University as an employee. Current Kent State University employees are not eligible to receive an alumni award.
