Sallyport Award Nomination Form

The Sallyport Award is presented by the Association of Rice Alumni (ARA) to an undergraduate degree candidate and/or graduate candidate who shows great promise in carrying forth the ARA’s mission of providing a continuing relationship between the university and its former students. The ARA recognizes individuals who have demonstrated one or more of the following:

  • Campus Involvement: Displayed loyalty, spirit and pride in the university through meaningful involvement in programs and activities.
  • Rice Connections: Fostered strong ties with classmates, faculty or other members of the Rice community beyond their college or department.
  • Community Engagement: Strengthened the bonds between Rice and the Houston community or other communities outside of Rice.

Recipients are announced in late spring and will be recognized during commencement season. Any student who graduates between December and August is eligible to receive this award.

Students, alumni, faculty and staff may submit a nomination. Multiple nominations for a student are welcome and encouraged. For students submitting a personal nomination, at least one other person must submit a nomination on your behalf.
