Nominations For The SUSS–EMP Alumni Entrepreneurship Award Are Now Open

Event Listing - (Award Nominations)


The SUSS–EMP Alumni Entrepreneurship Award recognises and honours SUSS graduating students who have demonstrated highly commendable entrepreneurial attributes, such as leadership qualities, self-initiation, self-motivation, high level of energy, high level of self-confidence, courage, and resilience. They should also have demonstrated high potential for achieving a positive impact on society.

One to three awards, of up to $5,000 value each, will be given to entrepreneurial SUSS students annually, subject to the quality of nominations.

All SUSS faculty, staff, students and external parties (e.g. investors or business partners of nominated students) are invited to submit nominations for this award. Nominators have to complete a nomination form and where applicable, provide supporting evidence. Nominees will be informed of their nomination and who nominated them.

A selection committee, comprising SUSS faculty/staff, will review all submitted nominations. Shortlisted nominees will be invited to present themselves for an interview by a panel (that may include relevant external parties), which will select the final award recipients.

Award winners are expected to fulfil certain responsibilities, such as performing the duty of SUSS advocates and supporting the SUSS Entrepreneurship programme and activities.

Your nomination will help SUSS recognise and honour students who have achieved highly commendable results outside of the classroom and who have contributed positively to society. Please direct any questions regarding this award to SUSS Center for Experiential Learning at
