Nominate a student

To nominate a student, you will need to submit a nomination package. This includes:

  • obtaining the consent of the student whose name you are putting forward
  • completing a rationale for the nomination
  • submitting a primary letter of support, and coordinating the submission of two more secondary supporting letters. Letters of support cannot exceed two pages in length.

The nomination package is submitted through the online nomination form, which includes a place to upload the primary letter of support. The letter writers of the secondary supporting letters can directly submit their letters online using the same online nomination form. The nomination form will be available on this page once nominations for 2022 open on January 1, 2022.
