Stanford Earth Alumni Awards

Stanford Earth alumni are leaders in their fields.

Since its founding in 2015, the Stanford Earth Alumni Awards program has recognized highly significant contributions to civil, government, business, or academic communities by members of the school's alumni body. The awards celebrate the long-lasting, significant impacts our graduates are having far beyond Stanford's campus.
