Celebrating the achievements of alumni in Kuwait

When outstanding individuals receive a world-class education in the UK, the effects can last a lifetime. The Alumni Awards shine a light on the impact that alumni of UK higher education institutions are making in their chosen field, and how this was sparked by their studies in the UK.

For the first time, British Council Kuwait will be hosting National Alumni Awards locally while the Global Alumni Awards will also be running in parallel. All applications submitted from Kuwait will be considered for both National level and Global level awards by default. However, the national awards are independent of the global awards.

Award winners and finalists are leaders in their fields who have used their experience of studying at a UK university to make a positive contribution to their communities, professions and countries.

The awards are open to any UK University graduate. However, it is mandatory for entrants to be part of the Kuwait-UK Alumni Network to be considered for the National Level Awards. So any UK graduates who are eligible but not part of the Kuwait-UK Alumni Network can register here  before you submit your award application.

If you are an alumnus of a UK university and you want the world to know how your work is making a difference, you can apply for the awards, we look forward to hearing your story.

Call is live until 28 October (for nominations) and 11 November (for applications).

There are three award categories: Professional Achievement, Entrepreneurial and Social Impact.

  • Professional Achievement Award recognising UK alumni who have distinguished themselves through exemplary leadership and achievements in their professional industry, and who can demonstrate the impact and scale of their achievements in their profession, and beyond.
  • Entrepreneurial Award recognising UK alumni who are active in initiating or contributing to innovative or creative new ideas, solutions or business opportunities that have the potential for strong growth.
  • Social Impact Award recognising UK alumni who have made an exceptional contribution and commitment to creating positive social change and improving the lives of others.
