Alumni Achievement Awards

The Alumni Achievement Awards honour and recognise alumni who achieve excellence in their field and inspire others to succeed.

The categories are:

  • Alumni Excellence Awards - Our Alumni Excellence Awards are presented to alumni who have demonstrated excellence in line with our University of Salford values and priorities. There are five subcategories for this award:

    • Driver of Social Impact and Inclusion

    • Leader in Creativity and Innovation

    • Champion in Health and Wellbeing

    • Changemaker in Environmental Sustainability

    • Global Ambassador for Salford

  • Alumni Rising Star Awards – Celebrating our upcoming alumni talent, our Rising Stars have achieved amazing things in the short time since they graduated and are on their way to reaching even greater success. This category is open to nominees who have graduated within the last ten years. 
  • Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award - This award recognises a member of the alumni community who has distinguished themselves for their excellent and sustained contributions and achievements over their professional lifetime.
  • Alumni Volunteer of the Year Award - The recipient gives their time to raise the confidence and aspirations of our student body, helping us to create a rich and diverse, industry-led experience for our students. 

The awards are open to all alumni from the University of Salford and all of our predecessor institutions. We particularly welcome nominations about female alumni and those who are Minoritised Ethnic, as in the past they have been under-represented.
