LAST CALL for Undergraduate Student Awards!

Dear Colleagues:

During the final weeks of the academic year, the University will have the opportunity to recognize members of the Class of 2021 who have made an impact during their four years at Fairfield University. We are asking for your help in identifying our outstanding seniors.

Please consider submitting a nomination for a student or students from the Class of 2021 for the St. Ignatius Loyola Medal, the William J. Kramer ’60 Humanitarian Award, and the Student Achievement Awards.

To submit a nomination, visit https://studentawards.fairfield.eduNominations will be accepted through Friday, March 5th.  

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 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.

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 who served 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.  

Thank you in advance for your nomination. Please contact the Vice President for Student Life office at 203-254-4000 ext. 3425 or if you have any questions.
