ICE Awards

Meyer ICE Award

The Meyer Innovation and Creative Excellence (ICE) Awards were created and endowed by Patrick Meyer '74 VSB in honor of the Meyer family (Patrick '74, Edward '86, and C. Paul '30) to recognize a spirit of innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship that enhances Villanova University.

Beginning in the spring 2013, the ICE Center will grant the following Meyer ICE Awards to our community:

  • 5 student awards (one for a graduating student in each school/college) complete with a trophy and $1,000 prize for each student, and
  • 1 faculty award (any school/college) complete with a trophy and a $2,500 prize.

The 2014 Meyer ICE Award nomination process is now open.
Nominate a student or faculty member by using this form. Self nominations are accepted.
