PBSci Distinguished Alumni Award Call

Physical and Biological Sciences alumni, staff, and faculty (including emeriti) are invited to nominate an alumnus/alumna for the Physical and Biological Sciences Distinguished Alumni Award. This prestigious award honors graduates of the division who have gone on to extraordinary accomplishments in diverse fields.

Our alumni make us proud of their efforts and achievements in the public and private realms—in industry, research, technology, and education. Many of the division’s former students have built on their UC Santa Cruz educational experience to implement their ideals and achieve their goals. Many have distinguished themselves through their work for environmental sustainability, science journalism, and scientific research, or as leaders in industry, technology, or other fields. Some have taken paths that could have not been predicted by their academic studies, but which have led to notable achievements.

One award is presented annually to a graduate whose career is characterized by sustained and exemplary contributions to society through research, practice, education, policy, or service. The award winners bring enduring honor to their alma mater as practitioners and as citizens.

Nominations for 2017-2018 will be accepted beginning October 1, 2017.
