2017 NSW International Student Awards - nominations now open.

Studying a degree abroad at one of Australia’s prestigious educational institutions requires hard work and self-discipline. Engaging in extracurricular activities on top of your studies can be even harder. To acknowledge exceptional NSW-based international scholars, as well as the organisations that support them, nominations for the 2017 NSW International Student Awards are now open! These awards shine a spotlight on those individuals and teams going above and beyond in their community, and also recognise the vital involvement of educational institutions, local organisations and community groups that enable connections to flourish.

Comprised of two categories, the first of the Awards provide an opportunity for NSW higher education institutions to recognise students for their exemplary community engagement, adding value and being an all-round inspirational role model. The second category identifies program enabling connections between international students and their community, deemed to have contributed to improved engagement over a period of 12 months (from 1 March 2016).

His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret'd), Governor of New South Wales, will host an awards ceremony at NSW Government House in Sydney on Friday 22 September 2017 to officially announced the winners for both categories.

For the first time, the award winners will receive a cash prize to put towards study and living expenses or towards the winning initiative or program, conditional to the category.

Nominations will close at 5 pm AEST, Monday 5 June 2017.
