Alumni Awards nominations

Our Vice Chancellor’s Outstanding Alumni Awards have been designed to publicly recognise and celebrate alumni achievements, particularly where their study here at ARU has contributed to their success.

Throughout the past year, we have heard many inspiring stories of our students and alumni leading by example, and supporting their communities in the fight against Covid-19. We have therefore decided to formally recognise these individuals through the introduction of two new, additional categories for our Alumni Awards: our Alumni Frontline Service Award, and Alumni Community Champion Award.

Award categories

Five categories were shortlisted for our 2021 Alumni Awards which were originally due to take place in April 2020 and have now been rescheduled to April 2021.

We will additionally present awards for the following two categories:

1. Alumni Frontline Service Award

Recognising alumni who have worked on the frontline, making an extraordinary contribution to the fight against Covid-19 through their role as a keyworker during the global pandemic. (A keyworker is defined as a public-sector or private-sector employee providing an essential service during the Covid-19 global pandemic).

Alumni Community Champion Award

Recognising alumni whose outstanding voluntary work has helped sustain and support their community through the pandemic.

With the Vice Chancellor's Outstanding Alumni Awards taking place on Thursday 29 April, 2021, stay tuned to hear more about our winners soon!
