Distinguished Alumni Award

Distinguished Alumni Award

We established the Distinguished Alumni Award to showcase the diverse talent trained by the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and its predecessor, the Center on Philanthropy. This award recognizes significant achievement in the fields of philanthropic research, practice, and academic study.

An alumnus of the school is defined as a graduate from a degree or fellowship program administered by the school at any level since 1987.
