The annual Alumni Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of our alumni. The awards are divided into two categories: alumni achievement awards for graduates already established in their careers, and graduate medals, which recognise younger achievers who in the previous year graduated or completed their degree requirements. Each year, the recipients receive their awards at the Alumni Awards Presentation held in the Great Hall. The 2013 Alumni Awards night is on Friday 27 September. Register online to attend.
This prestigious awards program has been running for more than 20 years. It features a wide range of awards to recognise outstanding achievements made by alumni locally and outside of Australia in community service and their professional field.
The recipients of these awards are people whose achievements are of the highest calibre. They may have already attracted attention in their field or may still be unknown to a wider audience.
Alumni achievement awards are divided into four categories: community, international and professional achievement, and an award for a graduate 30 years or younger.
There are six Graduate medals awarded each year including: the Convocation Medal (undergraduate), Edmund Barton Medal (master's by coursework), Rita and John Cornforth Medal (PhD), Sister Alison Bush Medal (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander), John C Harsanyi Medal (international student) and the Nigel C Barker Medal (sporting).
