Call for Nominations: 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award


The Alumni Executive Committee of The General Theological Seminary is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award. This annual award is for Seminary degree-holders worthy of special recognition. The award presentation will take place during the 2017 Alumni Gathering. The date for the event will be announced. Recipients of the award are graduates of the Seminary in either priestly or lay orders. Past recipients have included exemplars of a broad range of both extraordinarily original, path-breaking ministries and extraordinarily faithful, though quiet, ministries. Candidates may be put forth on the basis of lifetime achievement or to honor significant accomplishment that brought credit both to the Church and the Seminary. Nominees may be well-known, but care should be given to identify inspiring yet unheralded ministries.

Those submitting nominations must identify themselves by name and GTS class year and provide a daytime phone number and/or email address. For complete information and eligibility requirements, click here or email

Nominations must be received by October 1, 2016.
