Alumnae Awards

The Scripps alumnae community is made up of so many amazingly dedicated, involved, and accomplished individuals. Together, they define the great strength and resilience of the collective community. Each year, we celebrate the vitality of Scripps alumnae association by honoring three alums—distinguished alumna of the year, outstanding recent alumna, and volunteer of the year—and the positive impact they have in their own communities and beyond. The year’s awardees are typically honored at Reunion Convocation in Balch Auditorium during Reunion Weekend. Nominations for awardees open in December. Self-nominations for distinguished alumna and outstanding recent alumna are accepted and encouraged. Why are self-nominations so important?
