The University makes the following awards annually at Commencement:
The Kenneth M. Cuthbertson Award for Exceptional Contributions to Stanford
The purpose of this award, which is open to all members of the Stanford community, is to recognize extraordinary contributions to the achievement of the goals of the University. Such contributions might be, for example, unusually distinguished service to the University, uncommon ingenuity in meeting University objectives, or exceptional intelligence, diligence, and sensitivity in discharging responsibilities.
Who May Nominate? Any member of the Stanford community may nominate for one or more of these awards. Students are especially encouraged to nominate anyone who has made a special contribution to their education.
Why Nominate? Stanford's quality as an educational institution depends upon the dedication of its faculty, students, and staff. Recognizing those whose extraordinary efforts have made Stanford a better place thanks the award winners and reminds the community of the importance of individual contributions to the institution. Each award carries a cash stipend, a formal citation, and extensive public recognition.
