The Distinguished Alumni Awards is the highest honor bestowed upon an alumna/alumnus. The Alumni Association established the awards in 1988 to recognize extraordinary alumni who have enhanced the reputation of the university by distinguishing themselves in their careers and have made significant contributions to their community, state and nation through professional service, public service and civic activities.
Every year, the Alumni Association honors excellence by bestowing a number of awards to alumni with outstanding achievements. These individuals exemplify the loyalty, passion and innovation found in all dedicated Broncos. Honorees are recognized at the annual Distinguished Alumni Awards Gala the night before Homecoming.
If you would like to nominate an alumnus or alumna for this prestigious award, please submit a nomination form online and help us grow this impressive list of honorees.
PLEASE INCLUDE: A letter describing the nominee’s qualifications and why they should be selected, a resume, bio of the nominee and two letters of reference for the nominee. We accept nominations all year long, but the deadline for fall awards is April 30.
