Call for Nominations: Student Achievement Awards & Graduate Service Awards

Nominate a graduating senior or graduate student by Wednesday, February 26.

Undergraduate Student Achievement Awards

During the final weeks of the academic year, the University will recognize members of the Class of 2020 who have made an impact during their four years at Fairfield University. We are asking for your help in identifying our outstanding seniors.

Nominated students from the Class of 2020 will be awarded the St. Ignatius Loyola Medal, the William J. Kramer ’60 Humanitarian Award, and the Student Achievement Awards.

  • Instituted in 1952, the St. Ignatius Loyola Medal is the highest honor awarded to a graduating senior each year by Fairfield University. The award recognizes a senior who has maximized opportunities for emotional, social, and intellectual growth throughout their undergraduate career, and who truly exemplifies the spirit of a Catholic, Jesuit education. The recipient will have earned and maintained high academic standards in the classroom, is a member of Alpha Sigma Nu (the Jesuit Honors Society) and/or other academically-related honors society, and will have had a significant impact on the campus community (on or off-campus) through their sustained and consistent involvement in community service, curricular, and/or co-curricular activities. This award is presented annually by the Alumni Association and the Division for Student Life.
  • The William J. Kramer ’60 Humanitarian Award recognizes one senior and is based solely on the senior’s commitment to volunteerism and service to an external or internal community activity that best exemplifies the Ignatian tradition of being men and women for others. This award is sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. James J. Daly P’93, ’92, ’85, in memory of their dear friend William J. Kramer ’60, P’96, ’85, ’83, the first Fairfield University alumnus to serve as Chairman of the Fairfield University Board of Trustees.
  • The Student Achievement Award recognizes graduating seniors who have shown exceptional dedication to, enhancement of, and/or creation of a specific Fairfield University program, activity, organization, or project which has had a significant and positive impact on the larger Fairfield University campus community.

There will be a formal recognition ceremony and reception to honor award recipients on Monday, April 20, at 4 p.m. in the Barone Campus Center, Dogwood Room.

Graduate Student Service Awards

During the final weeks of the academic year, the University will have the opportunity to recognize one graduate student within each academic school and within Graduate Student Life who made an impact during their time at Fairfield University. Graduate students can be recognized for their exceptional dedication to, and enhancement of, a specific program, activity, organization, or project (or group of activities or projects) within the Fairfield University and/or greater community. The graduate student’s commitment to this activity must have resulted in the activity attaining a new level of achievement (a) not possible without the student’s participation and (b) above and beyond any work completed to satisfy a specific course or program requirement. The student should have clearly maximized opportunities for emotional, social, and intellectual growth throughout the duration of their program, and should best exemplify the true spirit of a Jesuit education.

To submit a nomination for the Graduate Student Service Award, please complete the online form.

The Graduate Student Awards Ceremony and Dinner will be held on Saturday, April 18 at 5 p.m. This dinner is by invitation only.
