Alumni Medallion Nomination Form

First awarded in 1934, the Alumni Medallion is the highest and most prestigious award given by the Alumni Association. It is presented annually during Charter Day Weekend to as many as four alumni. Qualified nominees must have completed studies (undergraduate or graduate) at least 10 years prior to the awarding. Nominees should demonstrate a strong history in three areas: giving back to W&M, community involvement, and achievement in their professional or vocational endeavors. This nomination should identify examples of each area. It is the intention of the Alumni Association that all three areas be evaluated and considered equally in determining exemplary achievement. However, there may be valid and compelling reasons when individuals are deemed worthy of consideration based largely on exceptional achievements in one or two areas that exceed levels attained by even the most accomplished or heralded Alumni Medallion recipients.
Nominations for the Alumni Medallion Award are accepted throughout the year. However, they must be received by April 1 to be considered for presentation during the next Charter Day weekend. Nominations received after that date will be held for consideration the following year. Once an individual is nominated, he/she will be considered for 3 years but must be re-nominated to receive consideration following that period.
