Biunno Scholarship Essays

The Awards Committee reviews nominations and makes recommendations to the Executive Board to recognize members’ contributions to the association and the admission counseling profession. Awards are announced and presented at the annual conference.

The Biunno-Lynes Award for Outstanding Commitment & Service

Executive Board Award

The Biunno-Lynes Award is the highest recognition NJACAC can bestow upon an executive board member (present or past) and recognizes one’s loyalty, dedication and extraordinary service to NJACAC. Past recipients have contributed greatly to the organization over the course of many years, having been elected to the Presidential cycle and other Executive Board positions, serving as active Chairs and/or members on standing Committees, and volunteering for multiple NJACAC-led programs and events. The Award is named in memory of Robert Biunno (1927-1976) and George Lynes (1937-2015), two prominent admission professionals who helped shape the profession and the growth of NJACAC.
