The nomination period for Alumni of the Year Award 2019 is OPEN!

Our community of alumni has made a significant impact in the Czech Republic and worldwide. Each year, we recognize one alumnus or alumna who has made an outstanding contribution through the Alumni of the Year Awards. Exceptional achievements shouldn't stay unnoticed, and we believe that our annual Alumni of the Year Awards are an essential part of keeping our alumni network connected to the UNYP community. 

UNYP Alumni of the Year Award recipients serve as an inspiration for the generations of students who will follow.

The University of New York in Prague allows students to discover their potential and become reliable, prosperous and well-educated individuals. We encourage and empower our students to turn their ingenuity into reality and make extraordinary things happen. Our Alumni of the Year must embody these values and will have made a valuable contribution to the University, the community or their professional field. We accept nominations from anyone, including current students and staff and former students and staff.
