Virtual Celebration (right here!)

Support Citizen Laureate

All members of the Great Dane family are invited to join us as we honor our past while investing in our future.

With a history spanning more than 40 years, The University at Albany Foundation's Citizen Laureate Awards Dinner has honored outstanding leaders in business and industry, government, and academics, each of whom has helped transform our region in distinctive ways. It has also become one of the premier events in the Capital Region and remains a signature fundraising event for UAlbany student scholarships.

Learn more about sponsorship opportunities, our laureate legacy and event history, and this event's life-changing impact on our students.



Thank You to Our 2020 Supporters!
