Alumni Awards

Christyl C. Johnson, SEAS, Ph.D '12, recipient of the Alumni Outstanding Achievement Award

Each spring we recognize contributions made by alumni through service to the university at the Alumni Outstanding Service Awards and in the fall we recognize alumni that have attained notable achievements in their field at the Distinguished Alumni Achievement Awards.

 
Alumni Outstanding Service Award and the Jane Lingo Alumni Outstanding Service Award
The Alumni Outstanding Service Award is given to alumni who advance the mission of the university through dedicated volunteer efforts in support of its programs, thereby ensuring the university’s impact on our community and future generations of students. 
 
The Jane Lingo Alumni Outstanding Service Award was created to commemorate the passing of Jane Lingo, CCAS BA ’46. Through her service as an alumna, staff member, and friend, Lingo was a lifelong participant in the George Washington University family. This recognition is awarded annually to a faculty or staff member who is a GW alumnus/a, and who consistently advances the mission of the university through dedicated volunteer efforts in support of its programs.
 
 

Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award and Recent Alumni Achievement Award

The Alumni Achievement Award is the highest form of recognition given by the university and The George Washington Alumni Association to an alumnus on an annual basis. The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award recognizes the professional achievements of alumni. The Recent Alumni Achievement Award is given to graduates of the last 10 years who have attained notable achievements in their field of endeavor. Nominations are currently closed.
 
GWBAA IMPACT Award
The George Washington Black Alumni Association (GWBAA) IMPACT Award is the highest form of recognition bestowed on distinguished black alumni by the GWBAA executive committee. Each year, the IMPACT Award celebrates three black alumni who have cultivated a proven history of commitment to GW. Through professional endeavors and community engagement, IMPACT Award recipients have made indelible contributions to their alma mater, their local communities, and society at large. Nominations are currently closed.
