2018 Alumni Achievement Awards

The 2018 UCC Alumni Achievement Awards

Each year UCC honours alumni who have achieved outstanding success in their chosen fields.  UCC’s Alumni Achievement Awards programme recognises UCC alumni who have excelled in their life’s work, who have demonstrated leadership in their field and who have been a source of inspiration to students and of pride to the University.  An Alumni Achievement Award is one of the highest honours the University can bestow upon a graduate.  To acknowledge the extraordinary voluntary support of the University given by UCC alumni, an Alumni Award for Voluntary Service to UCC is also awarded to one exceptional graduate each year.

To date, UCC has honoured 97 distinguished alumni with Alumni Achievement Awards.  Nominations are received from all corners of the globe.  This year nominations were received from fellow alumni, from colleagues and from members of faculty and staff.  In 2018, five alumni will receive an Alumni Award.

Each awardee will receive a specially commissioned silver trophy, designed by Mr. Don O’Mahony, Silversmith, which takes its inspiration from the proverb 'Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow’.  University College Cork’s next Alumni Achievement Awards ceremony, organised by the Development and Alumni Office, will take place on Friday, 30 November, 2018.
