The Aurum Awards are Dalhousie’s flagship alumni award, honouring community-minded innovators and visionaries who are making a difference here and around the world. Each year, our alumni are recognized for their outstanding achievements in innovation, community engagement and leadership, as well as for their contributions to the social, cultural and economic well-being of society.

Nominations can be submitted by any member of the community from mid-October to December. Beginning in January, nominees are peer selected. Winners will receive their awards in May during Dal Alumni Days.

Nominations for the 2023 Aurum Awards are now open. Are you or do you know a community-minded innovator or leader who’s making a difference? Click below to start an award nomination.
