UIC SPH Alumni Awards

The UIC SPH Alumni Association Awards Program is an outstanding opportunity to showcase our exceptional alumni, but we need your help in identifying graduates who deserve this honor. Nominators are asked to fill out the online form below to nominate an alumnus/alumna. They may also nominate more than one person for each award. For more information on each award, view the Alumni Award descriptions.

The deadline to nominate alumni is December 31st of each year to be considered for the upcoming Annual Alumni Celebration.  Any nominations submitted after December 31st will be saved and reviewed for the following year's Annual Alumni Celebration. 

This year, nominations for the following awards will be selected in January and honored at the Annual Alumni Celebration on April 5, 2018:
