Since 2009, the UG has presented the Alumnus of the Year award annually to a special former student. Last year the prize went to Taku Mutezo from Zimbabwe. Barely 30 years old, she is an international environmental lawyer with impressive management and council experience. In her work she fights for nature and against international animal smuggling. Check out this overview of previous winners.

We invite you to nominate your favorite alumnus for the title of Alumnus of the Year.

The award is both an expression of appreciation and encouragement for a former student who:

  • has made a special contribution to society, science, sport or culture;

  • is a source of inspiration for others

  • counts as a promise for the future (it is an 'early / mid-career' award).

The jury will choose a winner from all nominations (from faculties, but also from alumni, employees, etc.). Attention will be paid to the election through, among other things, a press release, social media, an interview in Broerstraat 5 and a festive presentation.

Nominate before 1 March 2024!
