St. Edward’s University seeks to recognize alumni who live out the mission of the university and in doing so, make outstanding contributions to their professional, civic, and religious communities. Eligible nominees must have completed their education at St. Edward’s University or St. Edward’s High School. Awards may not be presented posthumously.

 The Alumni Board of Directors reviews the nominees each year and, in a partnership with the Alumni and Parent Programs staff, selects each year's honorees. Honorees are then recognized during Homecoming.  You may nominate an alumna/alumnus for consideration by completing the Alumni Award Nomination Form and returning it to  seualumni [at] stedwards.edu by August 31, 2016 for the 2017 Alumni Awards.
