The Ellucian Impact Award celebrates higher education visionaries who inspire others to push the boundaries of technology and innovation. The annual award, previously known as the EllumiNation Award, recognizes a stand-out customer institution using technology to produce a better student experience, become more efficient, and to resolve challenges. The Ellucian Impact Award is a single award offering a $25,000 grant for the winning institution and $5,000 grants for two finalists. Winning entries will demonstrate unique vision and innovation, impact on the institution and students, creativity in the application of technology to meet objectives, and/or impact on the higher education community at large.
