Note that the GSE will send the nomination and letters of support to the nominee as part of our annual summer notification practice.
Nominations for the 2023 award are now closed. The 2023 Alumni Excellence in Education Award honorees will be announced in August followed by a celebration at reunion on October 20. Nominations received after April 3, 2023 will be included in the 2024 nomination pool.
Please complete the form below to nominate a PreK-12 educator, counselor, or resource teacher working with young people in a school setting. Only nominations received by the due date will be considered. Alternatively, nominate an education scholar, higher education faculty member, policy leader, edtech innovator, school administrator, or other education professional here.
The strongest nominations include details and examples that shed light on the nominee's strengths, achievements, and activities beyond what is stated in the nominee's resume/CV/LinkedIn profile. Note that at least one letter of support (1-2 pages long) written by someone other than the nominator is required. Please be sure that the letter writer's full name and email address are listed at the top of all letters of support. A resume, CV, or LinkedIn profile and second letter of support (written by someone other than the nominator - full name and email address listed at the top) are optional but recommended.
Unless the nominator has asked to be notified before the school updates the nominee on the status of their nomination, the GSE will send the nomination and letters of support to the nominee as part of our annual summer notification practice. If you've asked to be notified first, the GSE will seek your approval before we send the nomination and letters of support to the nominee.
We regret that we cannot confer posthumous awards.
We recommend completing your answers in a word processing application and pasting them in the form below to ensure you retain a record. For assistance with any part of the nomination process, please email Holly Materman.
