Each year, the Raven Society confers an Award to recognize excellence in service and contribution to the University of Virginia. This is the highest honor that the Society can bestow on an individual. The Award is reserved to honor students, faculty, administrators, or alumni of the University who have widely and sympathetically shared, supported, and advanced the function of this institution. Nominees need NOT be members of the Raven Society. The Award is not to be conferred solely for some exceptional attainment in some limited field of student activity, scholarship, or professional specialization.

Please read the full guidelines for alumni Raven Award nominations here.

Fall 2022 nominations for the alumni raven award now closed.

If you have any questions about selection criteria, required documents, or the nomination process, please contact our Vice President, Justin Wheelock, at ravensociety-vicepresident@virginia.edu.
