Alumni Awards

Recognising our extraordinary alumni

Do you know a graduate of ECU doing extraordinary things - either in their career, in the community or through their personal achievements? If so, please consider nominating them for an ECU Alumni Award.

Through this program, we aim to showcase and celebrate the wonderful things that ECU graduates go on to do after their time at University.

Encompassing four categories, the awards are the opportunity for ECU to recognise members of the alumni community who are making an impact – locally, nationally or internationally. You can see our previous winners through the menu on the left.

Nominations for the 2022 Alumni Awards are now closed; the program will open again for nominations in early 2023. However, if at any time you have an ECU graduate in mind for a future Alumni Award and would like to discuss this further, please feel free to connect to the Alumni Relations team.

Young Alumni Award

This award has been created to underline ECU’s youth as a University, and to recognise the extraordinary achievements of our new graduates in their first few years after university.

Nominees must be under the age of 35 at the time nominations close

International Alumni Award

This award demonstrates how our graduates are truly global citizens, contributing to the culture, society and economy of the places in which they live or work, using the skills acquired at ECU.

The award highlights the reach of ECU internationally, building the reputation of our University through the success of our alumni. To be nominated for this award, you must have been living and working outside Australia for at least the past five years or living in Australia but your work has had a significant global impact.

Community and Impact Award

The Community and Impact Award was created to recognise alumni who are achieving extraordinary impact in the field of equality, diversity and social responsibility, reflecting ECU’s commitment to widening participation, for example in fields related to low SES communities, those with disabilities, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities, or gender equality.

Distinguished Alumni Award

This is an ECU graduate who has not only achieved extraordinary success in their industry, but also demonstrates global relevance and a commitment to equality/diversity.

Winners of this award may demonstrate key achievements from the above categories.
