Who do you think is the Alumnus of the Year?

01 March 2019

Since 2009, the UG has chosen the Alumnus of the Year prize. Previous winners include Jeroen Smit, Stine Jensen, Wim Pijbes and Carolien de Bruin. The prize is both an expression of appreciation and encouragement.

Who do you think is the Alumnus of the Year for 2018? Do you know a former UG student who has made a special contribution and is an inspiration to others? Send your suggestions to alumni@rug.nl with a short motivation before 30 April 2019. The award ceremony will take place during the opening of the academic year in September.
