1.         Members of the Ateneo Board of Trustees should be excluded from receiving an honorary degree during their term on the Board.


2.         University faculty and administrators should be excluded from receiving an honorary degree during their term of service to the University.


3.         Although ordinarily Jesuits (being members of the "family") should not be considered for honorary degrees, Jesuits outside the Ateneo who have made an outstanding contribution in some field of endeavour should not necessarily be excluded from consideration.


4.         The honoree should be outstanding in his field and recognized as such.


5.         The honoree should also be distinguished for his integrity and probity.  He should be someone the Ateneo feels honored to make an alumnus.  He need not be a friend of the Ateneo nor necessarily well disposed to the Ateneo; as long as he implements some of the ideals for which the Ateneo stands, this should be sufficient.


6.         Distinguished philanthropists who have used their money wisely in support of a good cause or institution which has benefited the country or segments of the people may also be considered for an honorary degree.


7.         Those distinguished for humanitarian services, that is, one who gives of himself in a good cause and for the benefit of others may also be considered.


8.         According to CHED Memorandum Order No. 50 (series of 1996), only the following honorary degrees may be conferred:  Doctor of Humanities (H.D.); Doctor of Laws (LL.D.); Doctor of Music (Mus.D.); Doctor of Literature (Litt.D.); Doctor of Science (Sc.D.); and Doctor of Pedagogy (P.D.).

Ozanam Award

            The Ozanam Award was founded by the Ateneo de Manila in 1937 for the purpose of giving public honor to those persons who have given distinctive and continued service to their fellowmen in accordance with the principles of Justice and of Charity.  It is given only to laymen or laywomen, and it is intended to emphasize the fact that the Catholic is also a Citizen, and that the better the Catholic, and the more closely he lives up to the social teachings of the Catholic Church, the better citizen he is.  The Award is named after Frederick Ozanam, the great French leader, who founded the St. Vincent de Paul Society for the relief of the poor.

Bukas-Palad Award in Memory of Fr. Manuel Peypoch


            The Award, originally Peypoch Award, was first given in 1963 to Msgr. Jose Jovellanos.  It is named in memory of Fr. Manuel Peypoch of the Society of Jesus who taught at the Ateneo de Manila.  It is intended for clergy, religious men and women, not as a reward to the recipient, but as a reminder to our own students that there are men and women here in the Philippines who have dedicated their lives to God and to the Church and who work unselfishly for the good of their neighbor.


            The Award was renamed BUKAS-PALAD AWARD to capture the Ignatian spirit of "Generosity" and to give recognition to the unconditional, dedicated service of Religious in Christ's Kingdom.

Tanglaw ng Lahi Award


            The Ateneo de Manila University created the Tanglaw ng Lahi Award to single out those who have dedicated their lifetime to the pursuit of Filipinism and the Filipino identity through any of the channels of culture.  As such, the award recognizes the contribution of any individual, regardless of race, creed or political color, so long as it has succeeded in steering the national consciousness towards a clarification of the essential Filipino image.  This award was first given in April 1970 to Mr. Amado Hernandez.

The Lux in Domino Award


            The Lux in Domino Award is a special recognition of an extraordinary individual who has incarnated in life, and perhaps even in death, in an exemplary manner, the noblest ideals of the Ateneo de Manila University.  Recipients of the award are chosen exclusively from the ranks of alumni or alumnae of the Ateneo de Manila University.


            The title of the Award is taken from the motto of the Ateneo which appears both in the old and new seals.  Taken from St. Paul (Ephesians 5:8), the phrase Lux In Domino, "light in the Lord", traces an ideal and sketches a way of life which the Ateneo holds up to her sons and daughters as their path of Christian discipleship.  These words illuminate the purposes and aims of the University which point that the Ateneo is FILIPINO, CATHOLIC, and JESUIT:


FILIPINO, in that she seeks service to the nation and the objectives of genuine national development.


CATHOLIC, in that her fundamental charter is the Gospel of Jesus and the beatitudes; that her guidelines are those of the teaching of the Catholic Church.  In the contemporary perspective, those guidelines focus on service to the Faith which today includes the Promotion of Justice as a constitutive dimension of the task of evangelization.


JESUIT, in that she seeks to live the Filipino and Catholic marks in the spirit of the magis (the "ever more"): to seek the ever more generous, the ever more "totally given" service; nothing held back, in the spirit of the Ignatian prayer,


                        to give and not to count the cost,

                        to fight and not to seek for rest,

                        to labour and ask for no reward . . .


            To be "light in the Lord", in all fullness may demand a following of Christ even to the offering of one's life.
