Alumni Awards

Horizon Award

The Alumni Horizon Award recognizes the outstanding achievements of University of Alberta alumni early in their careers (within 12 years of receiving a bachelor’s degree or within 10 years of receiving an advanced degree). Up to 8 Horizon Awards are given out every year. Note: DDS, LLB, JD and MD are considered undergraduate degrees.

Nominations are considered for two years, pending the nominee is still within the designated time period of receiving their degree.

To nominate someone for the Alumni Horizon Award:

  • Provide a brief (500 words or less) description of the nominee’s accomplishments (nature and scope) and when these accomplishments occurred
  • Attach a minimum of two letters of support in support of this nomination and include the name(s) of the supporter(s) on the Awards Nomination Form. The supporter must be someone other than the nominator.
