ACU Foundation holds ceremonies at each campus during the autumn semester to honour student recipients of scholarships and faculty prizes and awards. This is a valuable opportunity for recipients and donors to meet each other face to face and for family, friends and staff to acknowledge recipients’ achievements. During the ceremony an exceptional student is chosen to present the vote of thanks, a personal speech describing the student’s own experience and expressing thanks to all donors, on behalf of student recipients.
Many faculty prize and award recipients receive their awards for the previous year’s achievements as final year students and thus are recent graduates by the time they are honoured at the prize and award ceremony. We encourage alumni to stay connected with the ACU community by updating their contact details, connecting on LinkedIn or joining the Facebook community.
