Clemson Medallion nominations open through September 17


Clemson University is accepting nominations for its highest public award, the Clemson Medallion, through September 17, 2023. The award is bestowed by the Board of Trustees and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a long and sustained commitment and significant service to the University.

Recipients of the Clemson Medallion are recognized as having earned the collective respect and admiration of the Clemson Family. As the highest honor, it is bestowed in a most selective manner and to a maximum of two recipients every other year.

This award is reserved principally for nominees who graduated from Clemson and others who have cultivated a meaningful relationship with the University. The award is reserved only for those individuals who exemplify the dedication and foresight of benefactor Thomas Green Clemson, who advocated for scientific education and the advancement of agriculture when higher education in those studies in the United States was in its infancy. Thomas Green Clemson not only provided financial support to the institution but was also a model as an agricultural scientist and man of learning for his fellow South Carolinians.

Learn more and make your nomination on the Clemson Medallion webpage.

The deadline for submissions is 4:30 p.m. September 17.
