Since their inception in 1946, the Boston University Alumni Awards have been the highest honor that we bestow on our alumni. Awardees are honored each year in the presence of the alumni, students, families, and guests gathered to celebrate this important tradition.

We are currently accepting nominations for the Alumni Awards. You may submit your nomination here.
