The John Carroll Award
The John Carroll Award was established by the Georgetown University Alumni Association in 1951 to honor alumni whose achievements exemplify the ideals and traditions of Georgetown University and its founder, Archbishop John Carroll. The John Carroll Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Alumni Association. All recipients have distinguished themselves through lifetime achievement and outstanding service to their alma mater.

The Patrick Healy Award
The Patrick Healy Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Alumni Association upon distinguished individuals who are not alumni. Established in 1969 and named for Rev. Patrick Healy, S.J., the first black president of a major American university and Georgetown's "second founder," the Patrick Healy Award symbolizes the deep admiration that the university holds for these unique individuals and special friends of Georgetown. The Alumni Association presents one Patrick Healy Award each year.
