Alumni Excellence in Education Award Nomination Form
The GSE welcomes nominations for the Alumni Excellence in Education Award. Strong candidates from across a range of education sectors (schools, districts, nonprofits, tech, academia, or research) will have demonstrated excellence in one or more of the following award criterion:
Advancement of knowledge through research, teaching, publications, or technology as it relates to the interdisciplinary field of education
Commitment to dynamic, high-quality educational practice at the classroom, school site, or district level as a teacher, principal, or district leader
Dedication to underserved and low-resourced student populations
Innovation in addressing a timely issue or challenge in education
Leadership in educational policy at the local, state, federal, or international level
Nominations for all GSE alumni, from recent grads to those with more established careers, are welcome. Self-nominations cannot be accepted.
Each nomination can be submitted up to three times.
Recipients are selected by a committee that includes GSE alumni, faculty, and the dean.
We strongly encourage recipients to attend the award reception (typically in October) either in person (travel stipend available to recipients who travel to Stanford from beyond the SF Bay Area) should that be safe, or virtually, via livestream/webinar format.
DEADLINE: Nominations for the 2022 award are due Monday, April 4, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time
The 2022 GSE Alumni Excellence in Education Award cohort will be announced in August 2022.
