Your nominations are critical to our ability to honour our alumni for their excellence, exceptional achievement, and extraordinary service that reflect positively on our individual colleges as well as the University as a whole.

Award recipients are selected through a comprehensive evaluation process by the Alumni Awards selection panel. The Awards recognise the contributions our alumni have made in their communities on a local and global stage as they proudly represent and showcase the VU ethos.

Nominate a deserving alumna/us for an Award in the following categories:

  • Distinguished Alumni Award

  • Young Achiever Alumni Award
  • Outstanding Student - Future Alumni Award
