Alumni Awards

We are the advocates fighting for the most vulnerable, the entrepreneurs disrupting the digital economy, the researchers with a vision for a better world, the creatives changing the way we see our culture. We are part of a community that stands for purpose.

Together, we are UOW.

Help us recognise and celebrate the achievements of our alumni by nominating yourself or someone you know for the 2019 UOW Alumni Awards.

Nominations are now open in the following categories:

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

Nominations are now closed for 2019. Winners will be announced in October.


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.


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?


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, making a significant long term impact to the community or the University.


Do you know a forward-thinking entrepreneur whose innovation has made a significant impact in their industry, profession, field of research or area of expertise? We want to know about them.


Are you in awe of someone whose research is changing lives, or whose scholarly contributions have made a significant impact? If their achievements have brought greater recognition to their field of research or scholarship, let us know.

Recognising excellence since 2013

We have been recognising extraordinary alumni since awards began in 2013. These alumni are the people who have changed lives, overcome odds, challenge stereotypes, bridge gaps and advocate for equality. They are UOW.
