​We are excited to introduce the Stellenbosch University Social Impact Award, a distinguished honour presented by our University to recognise the remarkable achievements in social impact by our Academic and Professional, Administrative, and Support Services (PASS) staff. 

This award recognises the consistent contributions of our colleagues to our society's advancement. It celebrates the enduring relationships we have cultivated with external stakeholders beyond our University walls. It is a testament to the fact that social impact is a collective endeavour of the university and societal partners in various spheres of life. 

We acknowledge Social Impact in two distinct categories:

  1. The Team Award, in this award category the SU staff member or SU team of staff members can receive the award. The funding related to the award may be utilised towards the strengthening of the initiative. 
  2. An Individual Award, designed to honour an exceptional team leader and their external partners who have played a pivotal role in an initiative. In this award category, the SU team leader and external partner may determine how best to utilise the funding related to the award.​

To find out more about this exciting opportunity and the nomination process, please refer to the detailed awards regulation. Candidates may be nominated by colleagues or may self-nominate. The Social Impact Committee of Senate may also nominate candidates for the respective awards. You can submit your nominations electronically by no later than 4 March 2024. ​​
