Alumni Awards

Submit a Nomination

Completed nominations will be held as active and under consideration for one additional year should they not be selected in the year they are submitted. Nominators are welcome to update nominations in the second year. If a nomination is not selected after two years of eligibility, it will expire. One year must pass after expiration before a nomination may be re-submitted. Any re-submitted nominations must contain new material.

All Alumni Award recipients are selected by a volunteer sub-committee of the Alumni Association Board of Directors. All Recipients must be approved by the Illinois Tech president.

Current Illinois Tech staff or faculty are not eligible to receive Alumni Awards.

The number of awards bestowed may change from year to year based on the selection committee's votes. If the committee decides there are no qualified candidates in a given category, it may elect to pass on bestowing that award in that particular year.

The selection committee may also elect to change the category of a nominee and consider it for a different category than that in which it was submitted. If the nominee is selected as a winner after changing categories, the nominator will be consulted before the award is finalized in order to verify that the change is appropriate.
