Young Alumni Awards



Many of our young alumni have and are achieving amazing things in their personal and professional lives.

This year the University of Otago wants to recognise 20 of these young alumni. Alumni, who still in their twenties, are making incredible impacts across their communities.

They are those who are disrupting the status quo; using trailblazing ideas to solve old problems; ensuring the health and well-being of their community is in good health; demonstrating that leadership can be successful from non-traditional arenas; providing successful business models for this century; or showing innovation in an area dear to their heart.

We invite you to celebrate our alumni by submitting a nomination. You are welcome to make more than one nomination.


  • Age under 30 at time of nomination
  • A graduate of the University of Otago with a full qualification, a Certificate of Proficiency (COP) is NOT eligible
  • Willing to be included with a photograph, in various alumni and University publications including online, social media, and marketing material
  • NOT self-nominated

Please complete the form below to the best of your ability. Incomplete submissions may be unable to be accepted.
