The Aurum Awards are Dalhousie’s flagship alumni awards program, 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 during the nomination period, which is from around mid-October to early January. Recipients are then peer selected and celebrated in May during Dal Alumni Days at the Aurum Awards Reception – tickets now available!
