Alumni Awards

Each year we recognize a few alumni in our global community of thinkers and doers for particularly outstanding achievements.

Celebrating Service

These awards recognize alumni for their service to Dartmouth and contributions to their communities.

The Dartmouth Alumni Award

The Alumni Council annually presents the Dartmouth College Alumni Award to a select few alumni who have demonstrated extraordinary service to Dartmouth and civic organizations in addition to career accomplishment. The award recognizes individuals who graduated at least 25 years ago.
