The Distinguished Alumni Awards are for living graduates and cannot be posthumously awarded. Only an alumnus or an alumna of YDS can nominate an individual. However, anyone may submit a letter of recommendation. The Awards Committee emphasizes the importance of a complete nomination, which must include adequate information describing the person’s history and work, as well as at least one letter of recommendation.
