Alumni Association Awards

Every year, the Johns Alumni Association presents six categories of awards to honor deserving graduates, professors and friends of Johns Hopkins. This year, we honored 45 awardees during our first Virtual Alumni Awards Celebration, which originally aired on January 28, 2021, and again on February 5, 2021. For our next round of awards, we will celebrate our 2021 awardees virtually in Winter 2022.

Outstanding Recent Graduate Award

Honors recent graduates of Johns Hopkins (within 10 years of graduation) for outstanding achievement or service in their professional or volunteer life. Support of Johns Hopkins may be a consideration, but not a requirement.

Community Champion Award (formerly Community Hero)

Recognizes outstanding contributions that address critical social, economic and environmental needs throughout our society and communities, including local communities. Both individuals and groups are eligible. The nominee(s) may be either Johns Hopkins alumni (individual or group) who have impacted any community OR non-alumni (individual or group) who have impacted a Johns Hopkins institution.

Our deadline for 2022 nominations is December 1, 2021. Check back on the site and follow us on social media in Spring/Summer when we announce those winners.

The celebration for the 2020 awardees took place virtually in 2021. We will celebrate our 2021 awardees virtually in Winter 2022.
