Each year, the Point Park University Alumni Association Board of Directors presents the Distinguished Student Award, previously known as the Outstanding Student Award, to one graduating undergraduate student and one graduating graduate student. This award is awarded on the basis of academic excellence, volunteerism/community service, and exemplary character. The board is in search of students who are great assets to the Point Park community as a whole.

Point Park faculty or staff members may nominate a student who fulfills the criteria by completing the form below. Once a student is nominated, the Office of Alumni Relations will reach out to the student for more information, including a resume and personal statement.

Submissions for the 2017 Distinguished Student Awards are due no later than Feb. 6, 2017.

If you have any questions about the criteria or the nomination form, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at or 412-392-4204.
