- Distinguished Service Award Nominations
Nominations are being accepted for the OSU Distinguished Service Award through March 10,
2005. The Oregon State University Distinguished Service Award is awarded to persons, and in
some cases to organizations, who have made exceptional contributions, or who have rendered
unusual service, to society.
While persons or organizations receiving the awards need not have any connection with
Oregon State University, most of those previously selected have had some OSU connection.
Generally, the Distinguished Service Award is not awarded to current staff members or persons
with emeritus status, except under unusual circumstances. Contributions beyond OSU, to the state,
the region, the nation and/or the world, are critical.
Additional information about this award can be found online at
