Top 50 Award

Top 50 Award

Nominate an Outstanding Student

Note: Nominations will be accepted beginning Monday, January 9

It’s important that we recognize the extraordinary success of IPFW students. This year, the Office of the Chancellor proudly continues the annual program designed to turn the spotlight on outstanding students—and their outstanding accomplishments: IPFW Top 50.

IPFW Top 50 recognizes students who not only excel academically, but who also make their mark by giving back to the IPFW campus and their communities.

We ask the IPFW community to nominate the most deserving student leaders for this prestigious campus award. Please review the qualifications for nomination, along with deadlines and instructions for nominators, and help us celebrate the outstanding achievements of our outstanding students. 

Any questions, letters of recommendation, or other materials can be sent to
