2016 Alumni Awards

In 2008 the University of Reading established our Alumni of the Year Award. This year, as part of our 90th anniversary celebrations, we will be adding three new categories to the award scheme. In a departure from the established Alumni of the Year award, for the new categories we would like to get your opinion on who would be a worthy winner – and would like you to nominate a friend, colleague, or even yourself for special recognition. Nominations are sought for the following awards:

Volunteer of the Year

An individual who has volunteered for the University of Reading and made a significant contribution to the University of Reading through activities including but not limited to:

  • Talks
  • Mentoring
  • International Ambassadors
  • Taken placement students

Donor of the Year

An individual who has made a significant contribution through their donation(s) to the University of Reading/Henley Business School/Reading Real Estate Foundation.

Entrepreneur of the Year

An alumnus/a, who has made a transformative contribution to the local, national or international community through an enterprising business venture.

Terms and Conditions

Awards will be made at an upcoming event in June, and announced via eConnected in July.

Nominations are welcomed from

  • a current full-time or part-time student of the University of Reading;
  • an alumnus/a who has graduated from the University of Reading (or one of its predecessor institutions);
  • a current full-time, part-time or honorary/visiting staff member of the University;
  • a Distinguished Fellow; or
  • a lay member of the University Council, Friends or Court.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Nominations close 5pm Friday 4th March 2016.

Please note: Nominees should not be notified of their nomination at the time of submission. The University of Reading Campaign and Supporter Engagement Office will contact nominees once the submission has been considered.
