Undergraduate Awards – Nominate Your Students Now

The deadline for receipt of nominations is now approaching for the annual Access Programme and Adult Learner Awards, and the Amit Mehta Prize.

Members of staff are asked to bear in mind outstanding and inspirational undergraduates who have overcome significant obstacles to enter higher education and who go on to make the most of the opportunity.  Nominees should meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Someone who has entered the University through a non-traditional route, either through an alternative entry programme, for example Access to Leeds, or a foundation course such as CFG0 (Access Programme Award)
  • Someone who entered the University as a mature learner (Adult Learner Award)
  • A disabled student (Amit Mehta Prize)

Students' significant achievements can be acknowledged by nominating them for one or more of these awards.

It is hoped that the award will offer inspiration to other potential adult learners/access scheme participants.  Staff are asked to put forward undergraduate students from within their department who they feel merit an award for their efforts and achievements.  The winners of the Access Programme and Adult Learner Awards each receive £200, and the winner of the Amit Mehta Prize receives £300.  All attend an awards lunch to receive their prize.

Deadline for receipt of nomination forms: Monday 19 March 2012.

Nomination forms can be downloaded from www.leeds.ac.uk/ace/PS/APA.html or requested from Helen Sykes (h.v.sykes@adm.leeds.ac.uk).
