Alumni Awards

You are Charles Sturt University’s greatest achievement. It’s time to celebrate you!

About our awards

Our distinguished alumni awards are designed to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our alumni. This means you! They recognise the difference you are making personally and professionally as you journey through life and celebrate your success and the impact this has on others.

We are committed to recognising alumni who are living and breathing the Charles Sturt University ethos Yindyamarra Winhanganha, a Wiradjuri phrase that means the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in.

2020 will be the inaugural awards and it couldn’t come at a better time. More than ever we want to take the time to celebrate our alumni, especially given the challenges we’re facing thanks to COVID-19.

If you believe you’re making an impact and inspiring others through the work that you do, or know someone who is, be it as a professional or a volunteer, we want to know about it.

  • Process guidelines and policy


    The Alumni Award nominations will be assessed by an internal University committee.  Award recipients who have been nominated by someone else will be contacted to ensure they are happy to formally accept the nomination prior to formal advice being sent out.
