Nominate your outstanding alumni for our 2019 awards

04 Dec 2018

Our Outstanding Alumni Awards are presented to Manchester graduates

We're looking for nominations of Manchester alumni who have achieved distinction in their profession, through exemplary service to the University or the wider community or through outstanding service of a personal or humanitarian nature. 

Previous recipients have included:

  • Julia Tizard, Vice President, Virgin Galactic
  • Her Excellency Dr Amani Abou-Zeid, Africa Union Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy
  • David Nott OBE, Disaster and War Zone Trauma Surgeon
  • Gareth Owen OBE, Humanitarian Director, Save the Children UK

The awards are presented annually either during the July graduation ceremonies or at a mutually convenient time and we aim to have one recipient for each Faculty per year.

They are presented to alumni who have achieved distinction:

  • in their fields or professions;
  • through exemplary service to the University or the wider community;
  • through outstanding service of a personal or humanitarian nature locally, nationally or internationally.

Career achievement (as opposed to length of career) should be a key factor in the nominations.
