Nominations are now open for the 2016 University of South Florida Alumni Awards and can be submitted online at www.usfalumni.org/alumniawards. Nominations close April 15.
Recipients of these prestigious awards will be recognized Oct. 13, 2016 at the annual Alumni Awards Dinner and during Homecoming Week festivities. The three awards categories are:
Distinguished Alumnus Award – recognizing a USF alumnus who has reached the pinnacle of success in his or her career or profession.
Donald A. Gifford Alumni Service Award – recognizing an alumnus who has provided unparalleled service to USF.
Class of `56 Award – recognizing an individual who did not graduate from USF, but has proven to be a friend of the university by rendering distinguished service over an extended period of time.
Beginning a new tradition, USF will recognize its Outstanding Young Alumni, ages 35 and younger, at a new event designed to focus the spotlight on multiple up-and-coming Bulls. Nominations for Outstanding Young Alumni who are making an impact in their careers and communities will be accepted at a later time for an inaugural spring 2017 recognition event.
The USF Alumni Awards are sponsored by NorthStar Bank.
