Alumni Award nominations

The University of Sydney’s alumni community is filled with inspirational leaders, creative thinkers and outstanding achievers who are making positive differences in Australia and around the world.

You are invited to nominate a friend, family member, colleague, community leader – any University of Sydney graduate you believe should be honoured as part of the 2015 Alumni Awards program.

Whether they have just graduated and already have an extraordinary record of achievement and community contribution, or they are at any point along a stellar career path and making a difference in the lives of others, this is your opportunity to recognise them.

This prestigious awards program presented by the Alumni Council has been running for more than 20 years and is separated into two classifications, the Alumni Achievement Awards and Graduate Medals.

2015 Alumni Award Winners will be honoured at a ceremony in the Great Hall on Friday 16 October where the winners of the Graduate Medals will also be announced.
