2019 Distinguished Alumni Awards

Deadline for nominations—August 24, 2018

The Distinguished Alumni Awards honor California Institute of Technology graduates for their noteworthy achievements throughout their careers. Caltech has recognized 261 alumni in Science, Engineering, Business, and the Arts since it began presenting this award in 1966.

A living alumnus or alumna who has attained any degree (B.S., M.S., Engineer's Degree, or Ph.D.) at Caltech may be considered for this award. 

Graduates who currently are on the faculty or staff of Caltech are not eligible, with the exception of those who have achieved the rank of Professor Emeritus. Awarding the DAA to a retired Caltech faculty or staff member has been and is expected to continue to be a rare occurrence. Sitting members of Caltech's Board of Trustees are not eligible until they have achieved the rank of Life Trustee.
