In July 2020, the GDI Board of Governors passed a motion to accept nominations for the Order of Gabriel Dumont medals on an annual basis. Offering this prestigious award annually has the potential to raise the positive profile of the Institute, recognize important and influential community members, and create a critical mass of recipients and supporters of the Institute. The medals will be awarded annually in all three categories, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The Order of Gabriel Dumont Silver and Gold award recipients are selected by a Selection Committee appointed by the GDI Board of Governors. Anyone can nominate a person for an Order of Gabriel Dumont award. The Order of Gabriel Dumont Bronze student awards are nominated and selected by internal processes specific to the programs. Over the Institute’s 40-year history, 73 people have received the Order of Gabriel Dumont, 35 of those in the Gold and Silver categories. Recipients of the Gold and Silver Order of Gabriel Dumont medals are as follows:
