The Above and Beyond Award is presented annually to a friend or family member of a graduating student whose support went above and beyond the call of duty and made it possible for the graduate to achieve her or his goal.

To nominate someone, graduates must have had their degree conferred between June 1 and May 31 of the year prior to summer commencement. Email a one- to two-page essay detailing how the nominee helped the student complete his or her degree and include name, email address, program/school, and degree completion date.

Questions and application materials must be submitted electronically to awards@waldenu.edu.
