Alumni Awards

Distinguished Alumni Awards

CUPHSONAA began the Distinguished Alumni Awards program in 1977 to honor alumni who have distinguished themselves in one of the award categories. Since 2012, CUPHSONAA has bestowed Distinguished Alumni Awards jointly with the Columbia University School of Nursing Alumni Association (CUSONAA). The awards are presented annually at the Alumni Reunion each spring. 


Early Career Alumni Awards

The Early Career Alumni Awards recognize nurse alumni who exhibit excellence as an emerging nurse leader. The award category was created in recent years to honor early career alumni.



Nominations may be submitted online using the nomination form. See the site for specific deadlines.

Depending on the award category, candidates may be an alumnus, non-alumni, or an organization. Once the nomination packet has been submitted, the materials will not be returned to the nominator. Nominators whose candidates were not selected in the previous year are invited to resubmit their candidate(s) and update their materials in subsequent years.

Alumni Awards Committee

The Alumni Awards Committee reviews all nominations and determines each year's award recipients. The committee is composed of alumni chosen by both CUPHSONAA and CUSONAA.
