2017 Alumni Awards

There are over 138,000 UOW alumni doing amazing things in 175 countries around the world, and we want to recognise the very best.

We are looking for the ones leading their industry forward or answering the unknown. We want to recognise those who have set their sights on something bigger than themselves. The ones who have put their purpose into action.

Nominations are now open in the following categories:

  • Professional Excellence
  • Young Alumni
  • Research and Innovation
  • Social Impact

Nominations are now closed for 2017.

Professional Excellence

Have you ever met a leader who you truly admire for their noteworthy and sustained contribution on a local, national or global scale? We are looking for alumni who have created a remarkable impact and brought a greater recognition to their profession throughout their career.

Research and Innovation

Are you in awe of someone, or a group of people, whose research is changing lives? Or whose innovation has accomplished outstanding results? If their achievements have brought greater recognition to their field of research or innovation, tell us.

Social Impact

Have you crossed paths with someone whose positive impact on the community astounds you? They could be working in the non-profit, profit or public sector and making a significant long term impact to the community or the University of Wollongong.

Young Alumni

Do you know someone aged 35 and under who inspires you with their exceptional success, how they are changing the world at a local, national or international level or with how they are making a significant contribution to their chosen field?

Recognising excellence since 2013

We have been awarding extraordinary alumni since 2013. They are people who have changed lives, overcome odds, challenged stereotypes, bridged the gap and advocated for equality.
