About the Awards

The Distinguished Alumni Awards honour and acknowledge our alumni, recognising the outstanding contribution they make to professions and our communities.

The inaugural Distinguished Alumni Awards were first held in 2001 as part of the University’s celebrations to mark 30 years of teaching on the Bruce campus. The awards were held again in 2008 to coincide with the 40th Anniversary.

Meet our Distinguished Alumni Award Winners from 2001 to 2019.

The Distinguished Alumni Awards have been re-imagined for 2022. We invite the University of Canberra community to purchase a ticket and join us to celebrate the success of our Alumni. On Friday 18 March 2022 at the National Arboretum Canberra, we will have live entertainment by BABBA and delicious food offerings by Ginger Catering.

Awards are given in the following categories:

Chancellor’s Lifetime Achievement Award
In recognition of a lifetime's achievement.

Chancellor’s Rising Star Award
In recognition of an emerging professional in any industry.
