Alumni Awards Nominations
Each year the UAB National Alumni Society presents very special awards to individuals at its Alumni Awards and Recognition Luncheon. Please save the date for our luncheon, Thursday, September 26, 2013 at the UAB National Alumni Society House.
The National Alumni Society is now accepting nominations for the Distinguished Alumni, Honorary Life Membership, Honorary Alumni, and the Outstanding Young Alumni Awards.
Nominations for Outstanding Young Alumni and Distinguished Alumni Awards require both a letter of recommendation and a completed nomination form. A letter of recommendation is all that is required to nominate someone for the Honorary Life Membership and the Honorary Alumni awards.
