Outstanding Contribution to Support & Wellbeing

This award recognises projects that have championed their postgraduate community through support, wellbeing, inclusivity and widening participation initiatives. It could be a postgraduate taster scheme for current undergraduate students where they experience what Masters study is like, or raising awareness of the shortage of postgraduate housing with local councils, or even a campaign that resulted in policy changes so postgraduate teaching staff have the same employment rights as academics. As long as the project has postgraduate support, wellbeing, inclusivity or widening participation at its core, we want to know about it.

Nominations for our student and academic staff categories will open on Tuesday 4 April.

Why nominate someone for a Postgrad Award?

Besides the obvious bragging rights, our student winners are awarded a cash prize of £500, an international platform to showcase their commitment to postgraduate study, and recognition from academic communities.

For academics and professional support staff, the Postgrad Awards bring invaluable exposure to university initiatives and academic outputs on our internationally-popular platforms.
