Alongside the Gilbert Medal, U21 members have the opportunity to nominate colleagues within the network for a U21 Award for Internationalisation.
These awards recognise individual efforts towards particularly innovative or extraordinary projects, which further internationalisation, or a sustained and prolonged contribution to building relations between U21 members to support internationalisation.
The U21 Awards recognise:
collaborative working both within the university and with external partners.
demonstrable impact of activities undertaken by the nominee.
leadership, innovation and sustainability of activity.
how the nominee has built on standard practices in internationalisation.
the effectiveness of the nominee in supporting the university’s internationalisation agenda.
Up to two U21 Awards are presented each year. The award itself is a hand-crafted glass trophy, which is presented to the winners during the Annual Presidential Meeting. All nominees will receive a letter of recognition from the Provost of U21.
