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.

Send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short motivation before 30 April 2019. The award ceremony will take place during the opening of the academic year in September.
