Established in 2018, the Cultural Vistas Alumni Awards are presented annually to recognize outstanding exchange program alumni who exemplify the mission of Cultural Vistas, and have achieved outstanding distinction in their careers, community involvement, and commitment to cross-cultural understanding.
The Cultural Vistas Alumni Council is pleased to offer awards in the following categories:
The Distinguished Alumni Leadership Award is the highest honor bestowed upon Cultural Vistas alumni. The award recognizes former participants of Cultural Vistas exchange programs who have attained distinction in their chosen field while fostering international understanding and collaboration in their communities and organizations.
The Alumni Impact Award recognizes an individual for their contributions to Cultural Vistas, our alumni communities, and the field of international exchange and public diplomacy. This award further illustrates the greater value of international exchange beyond the duration of one’s formal exchange program, and celebrates the lifelong connection and stewardship responsibility as alumni.
Nominations must be submitted by May 31, 2019.
Nominations from the 2018 cycle will remain valid and be included in the award selection process. If you wish you submit a new nomination for the same alum, only the newest nomination will be reviewed.
All nominees will be considered for both award categories. Awards winners will be announced later this spring and recognized at the 2nd Annual Cultural Vistas Awards Gala on October 17 in New York City.
