The award honors those alumni who’ve contributed to bettering the lives of others by using their talents and resources either locally, nationally or internationally. Up to three alumni each year receive a $25,000 award to support the nonprofit organization with which they work.
Nine alumni have received the award since 2009, when the program started. Last year’s winners were Tom Ikeda of Densho, David Risher of WorldReader and Oliver Hurst-Hiller of Donorschoose.org.
Nominations are open through April 15, 2012. You can nominate an alumnus through the Microsoft Alumni Foundation website.
