If you know someone who fits this criteria, please take a moment to nominate them by using the form at the bottom of the page. Multiple nominations are encouraged and do add strength to the nomination.

About the Alumni Senior Awards

Many Grinnell alumni view community service, on both a professional and a volunteer level, as a core part of the Grinnell experience. The humanitarian spirit that students develop while on campus is a key part of what makes us Grinnellians.

Recognizing the importance of involvement and service to the Grinnell campus community and what that means to the newest class of graduates, the Alumni Council each year honors two seniors who have distinguished themselves through their donations of time and talent to the College and to their fellow classmates.

Members of the graduating class nominate potential honorees from among their classmates. This award honors those students who best exemplify the Grinnell spirit and to whom the class will continue to look for leadership as they become the newest members of the alumni community.

The final selection is made by a committee of alumni faculty and staff members, a representative of the Alumni Council Awards Committee, and a staff representative of the Student Alumni Council, with assistance and input from fellow classmates, additional faculty and staff, and the Alumni Council Awards Committee.

The Alumni Senior Awards are announced and presented by the Alumni Council at Baccalaureate prior to Commencement.

To nominate someone from the class of 2019, please use the nomination form below. Nominations are due by Monday, February 18, 2019. Don’t miss this opportunity to recognize a classmate!

Learn more about our past honorees, including 2019 honorees Rachel Bass ’19 and Bryce Lew ’19.
