Pfeiffer University's Alumni Awards


Since 1959, Pfeiffer has chosen to recognize the extraordinary contributions made by alumni of the institution by presenting two annual awards to deserving individuals. The Service Committee of the Alumni Association Board of Directors is charged with bringing nominations to the Board at large, where a vote is taken during the Board's annual spring meeting to determine recipients.

Submissions for awards made at Homecoming 2017 is May 19, 2017.


The Presidential Merit Award is given to an alumnus / alumna age 35 or under at the time of selection, who has excelled early in his/ her career and shows potential for continued success.
