Alumni Gala

Queen’s University Alumni Association (QUAA) is proud to recognize the achievements of outstanding alumni at the annual Alumni Awards Gala.

Award recipients are made up of alumni, faculty, students, and volunteers, many of whom are leaders in their communities and innovators in their field. However, the majority of nominations could not be facilitated for 2021 due to COVID-19. We are now accepting nominations to celebrate our accomplished alumni. 

Nominations are Open for 2022 Alumni Awards

Do you know someone who's a leader, supports their community, and deserves to be recognized? Nominate them for our 2022 Gala Awards before June 2, 2021. QUAA encourages nominations of all qualified and deserving individuals.
