Nomination process

Every year, our graduates continue to engage with the University on a voluntary basis. Right across the University, our volunteers' contribution enables us to deliver a broader, richer programme to students. It strengthens the relationship between the University and industry, and it helps to raise the profile of Ulster University locally and globally. Not only does this support benefit our current students and teams, but it also helps inspire prospective students and encourage fellow graduates to remain involved with the University.

If you know an amazing, talented and worthy Ulster University graduate, who has committed their time to give back to the University, why not nominate them for this prestigious award? Students, staff and the wider community are all welcome to nominate for the Allstate student and graduate awards.

We are delighted to be able to recognise these contributions with the Allstate NI Graduate Volunteer of the Year award, which will be presented during winter graduations.

Nominations are open throughout the year and close at the end of August. You can find more about the criteria and access the nomination form below.


The Allstate NI Graduate Volunteer Award recognises an Ulster University graduate’s significant commitment to the University through giving their time and expertise to help students, staff and fellow graduates. In its inaugural year, this was awarded to Anne Rowe who has volunteered over many years in support of the University. Anne sits on the Student Opportunity Disbursement Committee, in a member of the University Convocation and was an active member of the Alumni Association, attending events and reunions over many years.
