Are you committed to a cause? Have you been inspired by a friend’s socially impactful project? Do you admire someone in your college for their volunteering? Nominate them or yourself for the Vice-Chancellor’s Social Impact Awards today!
The Vice-Chancellor's Social Impact Awards are presented every year to students who show exceptional achievement and commitment to positive social change.
They’re a great opportunity to be recognised for the hard work you put into making a difference - or to celebrate someone else you know’s incredible impact.
Winners will receive the following: - A certificate of achievement, presented to them in an official ceremony by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Stephen Toope - Tailored support to develop their social action skills from the Cambridge Hub - The opportunity to be fast-tracked to the interview stage of the Worthwhile third-sector graduate scheme
**All you need to do, whether nominating yourself or someone else, is complete a quick nomination form by ** you can find here.
Anyone - whether student, University staff, or someone not associated with the University at all - can nominate someone for a Vice-Chancellor’s Social Impact Award. However, Awards are given only to students currently matriculated at the University of Cambridge, of any year or course.
We are looking for any students who have demonstrated leadership, ongoing commitment, passion and proven social impact. There is no specification about where the student's project(s) is(are) and when it(they) took place, however the panel often prefers to see evidence of recent Cambridge or UK impact.
Applicants are not told who has nominated them, but you are welcome to let them know yourself or to remain anonymous!
The Awards event will be held in 2020.
If you have any further questions get in touch with the Cambridge Hub Manager, Susana, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cambridge Hub is committed to making our activities inclusive to all students. We are more than happy to make reasonable adjustments to application processes, both written and interview. Please simply reach out to Susana at email@example.com to arrange.
