The Alumni Fellow Award is the most prestigious award given by the Penn State Alumni
Association. Since 1999, campuses were able to nominate candidates for this significant award.
The Alumni Fellow Award has been given to select alumni who, as leaders in their professional
fields, are nominated by an academic college or campus and accept an invitation from the
President of the University to return to campus to share their expertise with students, faculty,
and administrators. The award is a cast bronze statue and framed certificate.
