CDU Alumni Awards

Celebrating the greatness of our graduates

Our Alumni are a strong global network of CDU graduates who are our brand ambassadors and stand as role models both for our current students, and those who may be looking to further their education. 

The Charles Darwin University Alumni Awards program has been designed to showcase the best and brightest graduates who have become trailblazers and leaders, demonstrating excellence throughout their careers, and building on the foundation provided by CDU.

You can be part of this year’s Alumni Awards by nominating outstanding alumni, whether they are a friend, family member, colleague, or a member of the public – self-nominations are also welcome.

Nominations are now closed for the 2021 CDU Alumni Awards. 

Thank you to all those who nominated an inspiring CDU graduate. We look forward to announcing our winners on Thursday, 21 October 2021 at CDU Alumni Awards Night @ Darwin Convention Centre.
