Each of our five Awards recognises a particular area of strength and has different characteristics. Whilst you need to choose just one, you can decide later which one to apply for.
Students who achieve the Civic and Social Responsibility Award will demonstrate active participation in their local communities and society as a whole. These students will be able to demonstrate supporting a positive impact on society at a local or national level.
Students who achieve the Leadership Award will demonstrate a significant number of instances where they have organised a group of people to achieve a common goal. These students will have provided guidance, direction and support, and shown evidence of responsibility.
Students who achieve the Global Citizenship Award will be able to demonstrate an awareness and recognition of their place within a global community. These students will promote and embody a broad, culturally inclusive view as an active citizen of the world.
Students who achieve the Entrepreneurship Award will demonstrate the ability to design a new project or business venture, or to impact positively on the development of an existing project, business or organisation. These students will be adaptable to change, resilient when faced with adversity, creative with resources and confident in decision-making.
Launched to coincide with Hull’s year as UK City of Culture in 2017, this Award is aimed at students who can demonstrate their involvement in the arts. These students will show a commitment to creativity and innovation, as well as strong communication skills and the ability to adapt to new situations, perhaps embarking in interdisciplinary projects or collaborations.
