Being Edinburgh award

Reading time: < 1 minute
Nominations are now open for the 2022 Being Edinburgh award which celebrates former students who are making a real difference in the world.

Now in its third year, the Development & Alumni team created this award in recognition of former students who have made a positive impact through their life and work. It’s about seeing the attributes in them that make us proud to be part of the Edinburgh community, and that inspire us to be and do better ourselves. Their achievements are not necessarily well known, but their stories should be shared and celebrated.

Staff are encouraged to nominate former students for this award, if someone comes to mind when answering the following questions:

  • When you think about a former student from the University of Edinburgh, who makes you proud?
  • Who is making a difference in a way that makes you want to tell other people about them?
  • Whose story and achievements need to be more well known?
  • When you think about what it means to make a difference, who do you think about?
  • Who makes you want to be better when you think about them?

Nominations can be made on the Being Edinburgh website: Nomination form.

The competition is open until 28 January 2022. To find out more information about the awards, including the stories of previous winners, visit the Being Edinburgh website.
