The Early Career Alumni Award recognizes alumni who have demonstrated exceptional success in their chosen field within the first ten years after obtaining their degree. This can be demonstrated in several ways. Examples include, but are not limited to, professional achievements, contributions to society, service or support of the University of Wisconsin.
The honorees demonstrate the value that their English education has had on their lives and the rewarding paths that an English major may take initially upon graduation.
All nominations will be considered by a 4-person selection committee including representatives from English department faculty and staff and from the Board of Visitors. Self-nominations are welcome.
Recipient(s) will be recognized at the annual English Awards Ceremony in April.
