Student Leadership Awards

QUT students are leaders on campus, as well as in local, national and international communities. Each year, we recognise the leadership of these students at our Student Leadership Awards ceremony.

Nominations open

The Student Leadership Awards recognise QUT students for their:

  • contribution to the university community
  • contribution to the wider community while enrolled as a student
  • personal development activities

All currently enrolled QUT students studying towards a degree and who have not previously received a Student Leadership Excellence award from QUT are eligible to be nominated. If you are aware of an outstanding student who meets the criteria above, please nominate them for an award.

Award categories

The awards include:

  • one QUT Alumni Student Leader of the Year Award (selected from the Alumni Student Leadership Excellence winners)
  • up to nine QUT Alumni Student Leadership Excellence Awards
  • QUT Alumni Special Excellence Awards, awarded at the discretion of the judging panel.

Nomination deadline

The deadline for nominations is Friday 28 June 2019. For more information or to submit a nomination, please see the guidelines and nomination form.

Awards ceremony

The 2019 awards presentation will be held on the evening of Thursday 19 September in Room Three Sixty.
