Nominations now open for 2023 Study NT International Student Awards
The 2023 Study NT International Student Awards are now accepting nominations from Northern Territory (NT) international students, alumni and the community.
These awards celebrate the impressive achievements and contributions of international students, alumni, and the local businesses that employ and mentor them.
Four categories are open for nominations this year:
o Study NT International Student of the Year
Recognises an international student who provides exceptional peer support, actively engages with the NT community, demonstrates outstanding academic achievements, and acts as a role model for other international students in the NT.
o Study NT International Student Volunteer of the Year
Recognises a student’s involvement and contribution to the NT community, highlighting their personal growth and outcomes.
o Study NT International Alumni of the Year
Recognises the career and personal achievements of a former international student who has graduated from an international education provider in the NT.
o Study NT International Student Employer of the Year
Nominated by a current international student or graduate, this award recognises an employer in the NT that employs international students or graduates at a casual, part-time or full-time capacity.
The winner of the Study NT International Student of the Year award will receive $2,000 in prize money, and the Study NT International Student Volunteer of the Year and Alumni of the Year recipients will each receive $1,000.
Previous award recipients continue to inspire their peers. Rosie Nguyen, the 2022 International Student of the Year from Vietnam, now works as a Project Officer at the NT Government, a university tutor, and a mentor to new international students.
"Receiving the 2022 StudyNT International Student Award really boosted my self-esteem and continues to motivate me to excel,” Rosie says.
“Being recognised in this way enhances my resume, opens new career opportunities and acts as a stepping stone to personal growth and a successful career. It has also encouraged me to work harder to give back to the community."
Finalists will be announced in October and an award ceremony will be held in November.
Eligibility criteria and application forms can be found on the Study NT website.
To apply, send completed nomination forms, resume and supporting documents to StudyNT@nt.gov.au by 11:59pm ACST, 1 October 2023.
