Get to know more about the prize winners and the alumni ambassadors

The GUF-100 prizes for excellent students were first awarded in 1993, on the occasion of the 100th birthday of the Groningen University Fund (GUF). The prizes are awarded annually during an academic ceremony, the so-called Summer Ceremony. Each prize, awarded to the most excellent student from each faculty, comprises a grant of € 2500,- to be spent on studies or research.

Starting in 2011, the Gratama Foundation has made an amount of € 25,000 available for an annual ‘Gratama Science Prize’ for the universities of Leiden and Groningen. The prize is awarded alternately by the universities in Groningen and Leiden to a promising young scientist.

De Wierenga Rengerink Dissertatieprijs 2020 wordt uitgereikt aan mr. dr. Arpi Karapetian. Deze prijs voor het beste proefschrift dat aan de RUG is geschreven bestaat uit een geldbedrag van € 7.500 en een penning. Karapetian is universitair docent bij de Faculteit Rechtsgeleerdheid. Haar proefschrift ging over de verantwoordelijkheid van bestuurders van noodlijdende ondernemingen tegenover schuldeisers en andere belanghebbenden.

Meet the ambassadors

Representing 14 countries across four continents, these young international graduates are ready to share their Groningen experiences with everyone interested: from prospective students to alumni and from businesses to universities. They volunteer to bridge the gap between their home countries and their Alma Mater.
