Deadline extended for Distinguished Alum Award Nominations

Dear Faculty, Alums, and Friends of the Department:

We are pleased to invite nominations for the 2017 Colorado State University Atmospheric Science Distinguished Alum Award. This Award was created to honor former students whose accomplishments in their careers and service to the profession, the public and/or industry have brought recognition to that individual, to the department, and to Colorado State University. Award recipients will be honored in a special ceremony in ATS, to be held in late summer/early fall.

We invite nominations of outstanding alums at mid-career stage or beyond. We especially encourage nominations that reflect the diversity of our alumni population. The Department plans to confer up to two awards each year, typically at the mid-career and senior levels.

The nomination deadline is Saturday, July 15, 2017. Nominations will be reviewed by the Department Awards Committee. To nominate an individual, please complete the online nomination form available at and attach a current vitae or resume. Letters of support are not requested and will not be considered in the review process. If you wish to renew a past nomination, we ask that you submit a fresh nomination using the online form. A list of past recipients can be found on our Alumni page.

Please direct questions to Sarah Tisdale at

the ATS Awards Committee
