Citizen Laureate Awards

An event that began in 1977 as a way to bring together the academic and business communities of the Capital Region, The University at Albany Foundation’s Citizen Laureate dinner has evolved into the Capital Region’s premier awards dinner and UAlbany’s principal fundraising event, with proceeds benefiting student scholarships. Each of our distinguished award winners enrich our community in distinctive ways — economically, scientifically, culturally, intellectually and socially — and, taken together, their efforts are helping to transform our Capital Region. The Academic Laureate Award recognizes individuals for their notable achievements in academia and research. The Community Laureate Award honors individuals for their outstanding contributions to the Capital Region and beyond.
