NYUAD Alumni Leadership Award

The Award is given to an NYUAD graduate who continues to embody and expand the university’s values of collaboration, innovation, and service in order to make an impact beyond themselves. This recipient is a risk-taker who uses their professional and personal excellence to address humanity’s shared challenges in ways that inspire their colleagues, peers, and importantly, the evolving NYUAD community.

    • a commitment to fostering creativity, curiosity, and critical reflection in their personal or professional endeavors
    • work, either personal or professional, that tackles the challenges and opportunities of an interconnected world
    • leveraging intercultural awareness and personal leadership to help break down barriers that exist among diverse communities
    • a demonstrated impact on an underserved population, community, or group
