Those eligible for the award are nominated by any member of the university community and a full-time student in the Albers School, College of Arts and Science, School of Nursing and Matteo Ricci College. Students in the School of Science and Engineering were eligible for the Naef award until the school received a large endowment in 1995 for scholarship and research.
