Distinguished Alumni Awards

UFV Alumni are doing incredible work at home and around the world.

Established in 2003, the UFV Distinguished Alumni Award is conferred on a UFV graduate who has achieved outstanding distinction in career, educational achievement, or community service.

In 2012 the Young Distinguished Alumni Award was established, going to a graduate of UFV who is 35 years of age or younger and who has achieved outstanding distinction in the above categories.

Both awards recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of exceptional alumni, emphasizing the hard work of our alums across all ages and careers.
