Alumni Awards Program

Alumni Awards Program

The IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health annually seeks nominations for alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers or service to the school and/or IUPUI. Alumni can be recognized in one of two categories: the  Distinguished Alumni Award or the Early Careerist Award. The Distinguished Alumni Award is given to a seasoned alumnus who has made significant impact throughout their career and the Early Careerist Award is presented to an alumnus who earned their degree within the past 15 years.

To recognize the diverse talent trained by IU over the years, an alumnus of the Fairbanks School of Public Health is defined as a graduate of any program now housed within the school. This includes alumni with degrees awarded for programs previously housed within the IU School of Medicine or the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IUPUI.

Winners will be chosen by the current Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health Alumni Association Board of Directors. The Alumni Awards and Scholarship Luncheon will be held in the spring, even though the alumni award nomination and selection process is occurring this fall. 

While membership in the IU Alumni Association is not a pre-requisite for nomination, each nominee is encouraged to support Indiana University and the FSPH Alumni Association by joining the IUAA. Membership provides invaluable support to alumni programs of the school.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, September 17, 2021.
