Alumni Service Award

The BGSU Alumni Association awards program recognizes individuals who personify the University’s tradition as an institution of excellence. Through outstanding achievements and contributions, these individuals bring honor to Bowling Green State University, the Alumni Association and the nearly 153,000 graduates the Association represents.

Anyone can nominate a BGSU graduate or friend of the University who has provided exceptional leadership or innovation in their profession or community. Additional materials such as a biographical sketch, curriculum vitae, newspaper clippings or other supporting documentation may be included in addition to the nomination application.

The decision of the Awards Committee and the Alumni Board of Trustees are guided by the materials submitted by the nominator.
