The Marymount University Alumni Awards Program

The nomination period for the 2010 Alumni Awards is now open!

Nominations will be accepted through Friday, September 10, 2010. All candidates’ documentation must be submitted by this date.

All award nominations must include a resume, letter of recommendation, and supporting documentation, which may include additional articles or biographies, details about other awards or honors, etc. Please provide the maximum amount of detail to give the nominee the best chance of winning the award.

Traditionally, there are multiple candidates for each award. The Awards Committee bases their decisions on the nominees on a compelling description/story and excellent supporting documentation. We encourage you to supply more than one paragraph on the person you are nominating. Provide the most detailed and moving description of the candidate’s accomplishments as they relate to the award, and supply supporting documentation such as letters of recommendation and other awards or recognition your candidate has received. There may be as many as eight other alumni nominated for the same award—be sure the nomination you write is the best. The Awards Committee carefully reviews all submissions in their entirety and looks to select the most compelling submission.
