Do you know a student who is always there for everyone? Or someone who has achieved something special within their programme, outside of their programme, in their association or anywhere else in the world? If the student’s efforts are selfless and socially engaged, you can reward them with a nomination for Student of the Year.

Who is always there for others within the association? Do you know someone who brought groceries for everyone when the whole dorm was sick? Who was the driving force behind that one charity action? Maybe you know a student who works on behalf of the climate, for people in poverty or against loneliness, inequality or something completely different. You can nominate a single student, so not a group.

The jury will select five students who will advance to the public round. Online ballot boxes will open on Monday 6 May. These votes will largely count towards the final result. The jury vote and votes in the hall on 29 May will also count towards the final result.

What does the winner get?

In addition to eternal glory, the Student of the Year will receive a cash prize and a trophy. A new feature this year is that students will receive a sum of money to donate to a charity of their choice. The charity must have the ANBI quality mark.
