Students, Faculty and staff are invited to submit nominations for the Distinguished Graduate and Noel Enman awards, described below.  You may nominate a student by submitting their name with a summary of why the nominee is qualified for the award. Self-nominations are permitted. 

All students nominated for the Distinguished Graduate Award will then be asked to complete a “Distinguished Graduate Awards Information Sheet” that the Committee will consider in determining award recipients.

All nominations are due to Keltie Jones, Assistant Dean, Students, by Friday, March 28th, at 4:30 pm.

Distinguished Graduate Awards:

Distinguished Graduate Awards are designed to express acknowledgement and appreciation to graduating students who have, through their time, energy, talent and leadership, enriched the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus community during their studies without neglecting academic pursuits. Recipients are recognized for contributions made through their involvement over time in multiple activities, including, but not limited to, student government, campus activities, community service, sport and recreation, internationalization, or other campus programs. A Distinguished Graduate Award is given based on the totality of a student’s contributions to the Agricultural Campus. Students graduating from all Faculty of Agriculture programs are eligible for Distinguished Graduate Awards. While there is no limit on the number of graduates who may receive the awards, typically there are fewer than five. Students graduating from any of the Faculty’s programs are eligible to be nominated for these awards.

Noel Enman Award:

This award was instituted in 1984 in memory of Noel Enman (1961-1983). It is presented annually to a graduating technician or technology student whose personality and fellowship have contributed to student life and activities, thereby gaining the respect of the students and faculty.
