Tulane Book Award

The Tulane Book Award recognizes high school juniors who embody Tulane's motto of "Not for one's self, but for one's own" and have demonstrated excellence in academics, leadership, and public service. The award is given to one outstanding student at select high schools across the country every year. Each student will receive a book, a certificate of recognition, and a personal letter of congratulations that honors their achievements and uniquely identifies Tulane’s recognition of their accomplishments.

Please submit the online nomination form by the extended deadline of September 15. Nominations are accepted from high school counselors only for distribution to the selected student at an award ceremony. Awards will be mailed weekly as they are received once we re-open. If you have any questions, contact Valerie Calenda at or (800) 873-9283.
