Professor Brenda Gannon joins the Economics Judging Panel of the Undergraduate Awards.

The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s largest international academic awards programme that acknowledges the brightest and most innovative undergraduate students.

Cited as the ultimate champion for high-potential undergraduates, the Undergraduate Awards is the world’s largest academic awards programme. It is uniquely pan-discipline, identifying leading creative thinkers through their undergraduate coursework. The Undergraduate Awards provides top performing students with the support, network and opportunities they require to raise their profiles and further their career paths. Global Winners are published in the annual ‘The Undergraduate Journal’, as well as being invited to the UA Global Summit in Dublin, Ireland. The Undergraduate Awards 2017 programme is open to all penultimate and final year undergraduate students in a degree course, as well as those who graduated in 2016, from all disciplines.

Professor Gannon will be a judge in the Economics category of the awards.

The University of Queensland is an Affiliate Institution of The Undergraduate Awards. Comprising top level institutions from every continent, the Affiliate network reflects the global reach of The Undergraduate Awards. Students have the opportunity to compete in an international arena and represent their institution’s undergraduate programmes on a competitive international stage.

The University Awards recruits annually for Campus Ambassadors. This is a voluntary role and usually requires a commitment of no more than 2 hours per week on average, during term time. As a Campus Ambassador, you decide how to increase awareness of the programme in your university or college, on a time that suits your schedule.
