Annual Clinton E. Stryker Awards Banquet Moved to Fall

The Annual Clinton E. Stryker Awards Banquet, normally held each year in the spring, will instead be moved to the fall, with the 2019 date slated for Tuesday, October 1. The 2019 event will mark the 44th year for the awards, which are named for Clinton E. Stryker (EE 1917), who also served as an associate professor and on the Illinois Tech Board of Trustees for three terms.

The awards are granted to full-time undergraduate and graduate students who have maintained a 2.5 cumulative GPA and are in good academic standing. Nominees must have made a distinguished contribution to campus life through service to a particular organization or team, and/or by enriching the Illinois Tech residential community.

Stryker believed in encouraging students to broaden their outlook and develop leadership skills. In 1972 he established an endowment and subsequently made additional gifts to assist the university in funding student activities and inspiring leadership development.

Submission forms for the Stryker Awards will be available in August. Students being considered for an award will now be evaluated for an entire year of involvement at Illinois Tech rather than for just one semester. Contact Patrick Fina at the Office of Campus Life for additional information.
