Each spring the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts recognizes an extraordinary graduate student, undergraduate student, alumna/us, and faculty member with Ivan Allen, Jr., Legacy Awards. These awards are beautiful Frabel glass sculptures. The student and faculty awards also come with stipends of $1,000 each. The awards are made possible by 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 and advisers in their schools to secure 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.
Alumni nominees must have records of outstanding accomplishment in their fields or professions and must be nominated by a member of the Ivan Allen College faculty or staff.
Winners of the Legacy Awards are chosen by a committee of IAC faculty. The awards will be presented at the IAC Founder’s Day on March 13, 2014. Award winners will also be present for a special meeting with Pamela and Stephen Hall.
Nominations must be received by February 14, 2014. The nomination process is simple. Email a short nomination letter from each nominator and then each nominee must email a resume or c.v.
Send nominations to Associate Dean John Tone, Ivan Allen College, Georgia Tech: firstname.lastname@example.org
