Members of the Selection Committee and the Grinnell Prize program staff may not submit a nomination. Also, individuals may not nominate themselves (no self-nominations). There are no other restrictions. This means the nominator can be a relative, a board member of the individual’s organization, or affiliated with the College (e.g., a student). Ideally, the nominator should be someone who is well acquainted or personally familiar with the nominee’s work, and can attest to the nominee’s qualifications. Nominators should be available for possible follow-up questions throughout the selection process.
