Nominations for the ‘Vakkom Moulavi Foundation’s Professor N. A. Karim Award for Outstanding Public Service-2017’, consisting of a Rs. One lakh cash Award, a citation and a memento, are invited. The Award is to recognize and honor individuals who have contributed to public service in a way that has produced tangible benefits for Kerala society. Any person residing in Kerala or residing in other parts of India or abroad, who has worked on issues of significance to Kerala society that fall within the purview of VMFT’s goals is eligible for the Award, irrespective of religion, caste, state, socio-economic background or political affiliation. The award is given to individuals who may be working in the government, public or private sector organizations, NGOs, universities and research institutions.
In order to promote and encourage the younger generation to engage more actively in service to society, the Award will normally be restricted to people under the age of 50 years. The Selection Committee may, however, consider exceptions to this rule on a case-by-case basis. The last date of receipt of nominations will be 14th Jan 2017.
