Centennial Medal

Help GSAS recognize distinguished master’s and PhD alumni by nominating a candidate for the Centennial Medal, GSAS’s highest honor, which acknowledges alumni who have made outstanding contributions to society, the roots of which are based in their graduate education.

Submit your nomination to the GSAA, including your reasons for selecting the candidate along with their CV and bio. All submissions will be reviewed by the GSAA Council’s Medals Committee and senior University officials, whose recommendations are voted on by the Harvard Corporation.
