“Each spring the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts recognizes an extraordinary graduate student, undergraduate student, and faculty member with an Ivan Allen, Jr., Legacy Award. These are beautiful Frabel glass sculptures. The awards also come with stipends of $1,000 each. The awards and the stipends are made possible by our generous supporters Pamela and Stephen Hall.
Student nominees should demonstrate evidence of leadership, engagement, and academic achievement. Nominations must be made by faculty members or academic advisers. Students who feel they are eligible and would like to be nominated for this award should consult with faculty members or advisers to secure a nomination.
Faculty nominees should demonstrate outstanding records of service and leadership. In the case of the faculty award, we rely on school chairs to supply names of nominees. However, faculty who feel they are eligible may approach their school chairs to request a nomination.
Winners are chosen by a committee of IAC faculty.
The awards will be formally presented at the Ivan Allen Day dinner and celebration on the evening of April 13, 2016, at the historic Academy of Medicine. Award winners will be seated for dinner with Pamela and Stephen Hall and will also join the Halls for breakfast. The time and location of the breakfast will be announced to the winners.
Nominations must be received by February 26, 2016.
The nomination process is simple. I must receive by email a nomination letter from each nominator and then each nominee must email me a resume or c.v. Send nominations to Associate Dean John Tone, Ivan Allen College, Georgia Tech. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
