Distinguished Alumni Veteran Award
Established in 2012, the Distinguished Alumni Veteran Award (DAVA) is given to a living UW alumnus veteran who made a positive impact on the local, national or international community, the University of Washington or the veteran community.
Our award recipients have distinguished themselves both in community service and in their professional lives. Read about our previous awardees.
Before making a nomination, please read the selection guidelines.
Nominations via Mail
We are currently accepting DAVA nominations through the mail and online.
The DAVA Selection Committee is comprised of alumni, student, faculty and staff representatives from the University of Washington. The committee meets in September to review all nominations.
Veterans Appreciation Week
The University of Washington community is excited to celebrate Veterans Appreciation Week again this year. Join us Nov. 3-11 to commemorate Veterans Day 2014 and honor the UW students, alumni, faculty and staff who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Check back later this month for more information.
