The Global Undergraduate Awards

Our new 2024 Season is Open

The Global Undergraduate Awards is the world’s leading undergraduate awards programme which recognises top undergraduate work, shares this work with a global audience and connects students across cultures and disciplines.

Our values are innovation, collaboration, ambition, impartiality and inclusiveness. We believe in empowering students, helping them to recognise the potential their undergraduate work can have in making real change. We wish to connect the world’s brightest students and graduates early in their career to give them the confidence to acknowledge and harness their talents to build a brighter future. Fundamentally, we celebrate the passion and excellence of undergraduate students in their chosen field, and help them to explore how that passion can be deployed in making the world a better place for all.
