CBS Alumni Awards + Recognition

 
Know an outstanding alum? Nominate them for an award!

We know College of Biological Sciences graduates go on to do great things in healthcare, industry, education and many other areas. We think our grads deserve accolades for their efforts to make a difference whether that's in a high school science classroom or a biotechnology startup, a health clinic or an environmental nonprofit. So we created two new collegiate awards to recognize our amazing alumni. CBS alumni, faculty, staff and students can submit nominations. You can even nominate yourself!
