Reading Time: < 1 minute

If you know a student, group, staff member or alumni who is making a difference, now is your chance to recognise their efforts.

As a University we want to take time every year to thank volunteers for the skills, commitment and tens of thousands of volunteers hours given. One of the ways we do this is through our annual Volunteer of the Year Awards, which are given in four categories:

  • Student of the Year (individual) – open to any current undergraduate or postgraduate of The University of Manchester. This award is in association with University of Manchester Students’ Union.
  • Student Group of the Year (group) – open to any group of current students who volunteer together.
  • Staff of the Year – open to any current staff member of the University.
  • Alumni of the Year – open to any graduate of The University of Manchester (including Victoria University and UMIST).

The awards are affiliated to the University’s Make a Difference Awards and the winners also receive the President’s Social Responsibility Medal.

We are now open for nominations for 2022!  The closing date is 23:59 on Sunday 6th March.
